Acomb Jobs Fair has around 25 local employers, employment agencies and training providers lined up for the event which is open to all on 15 November 2017 at the Parish Church Hall.
City of York Council, through its 4CommunityGrowthYork project, is delivering the fair together with Job Centre Plus. Besides recruitment opportunities on offer, there will be help with job searches, further training and support into employment.
On Wednesday 15 November from 10am-2pm at the Parish Church Hall on Front Street, Acomb, York YO24 3DW, employers including Tesco, Lindum Group, Park Inn by Radisson, Gear4Music, HM Prisons and the Probation Service as well as City of York Council will be looking to recruit for live job vacancies.
In addition, job agencies including Bright Beginnings Childcare Agency, Job Centre Plus and WorkWithYork will be looking for people to fill current and future vacancies.
Employment support will also be on offer by York Learning, thanks to support from 4CommunityGrowthYork. Staff will be on hand to help people looking for work to brush up their CV-writing and job application skills, as well as helping people find the right sort of training to set them on the career path they want.
Councillor Keith Orrell, interim executive member for economic development and community engagement, said: “Our job fairs are very successful for workers and employers alike. I’m delighted that the council’s York Learning organisation is being supported to attend by 4CommunityGrowthYork to build on our ongoing work to help York residents secure jobs and the training opportunities they want.
“I’d encourage anyone interested to visit and see the opportunities at what promises to be a really worthwhile event.”
