Around 700 visitors are expected to visit York Job Fair later this month, where they will have the chance to meet 70 employers and training providers from across the region.
Held at York Railway Institute, Queen’s Street, on 25 September between 10am and 2pm, the popular event brings together employers, employment support agencies, education and training providers to offer local people job opportunities, information and advice
The fair is aimed at those looking for employment, considering a change of job or career and those who would like to develop new skills and gain new qualifications.
The event is funded by City of York Council and organised by York Learning in partnership with Job Centre Plus.
Cllr Keith Aspden, Leader of City of York Council, said: “The York Job Fairs are always hugely popular both with employers and prospective employees and I’m delighted at how much they’ve grown since our first one in 2012.
“It’s fantastic to see how many local and regional businesses have signed up to attend the event. By supporting the fair they are providing more jobs for people in York.”
I’d encourage anyone who is looking for employment, considering a career change or who wants to gain new qualifications, to go along.”
