To be held at the York Railway Institute (RI), Queens Street, from 10am-3pm, the event is supported by City of York Council and Job Centre Plus.
At the last fair in April this year, 800 people attended and there were 370 live jobs on offer. At this one, over 70 organisations and training providers are expected under one roof and will include:
- Marks and Spencer
- Premier Inn.
Besides lots of live job vacancies to apply for, there will be support in place to brush up CV writing skills and making job applications.
Councillor Keith Aspden, Deputy Leader of City of York Council with responsibility for Economic Development and Community Engagement, said: “Our job fairs are hugely successful and have been supported by council funding for the last four years. At the city’s last event in April, over 800 people attended and found hundreds of jobs on offer, providing significant opportunities for both employers and employees.
“In July we agreed to continue investment to support a further two job fairs as part of our ongoing efforts to help York residents access job and training opportunities.
“I’d urge anyone to go along and check out what’s on offer on Friday. Opportunities include live vacancies at every level, full and part-time positions, and apprenticeships targeting 16-24 year olds.”
