A fair chance for Biggleswade jobseekers
Date Added: 16/11/2015
If you are looking for employment, training, volunteering or apprenticeship opportunities then come along to the Biggleswade jobs fair and get the help and support you need.
The event will take place on Friday, 20 November from 10am – 2pm in Biggleswade Baptist Church on London Road, and offers job seekers in the local area a chance to explore opportunities and to speak directly to potential employers.
There will be plenty of support from a number of organisations and employers who will be promoting their vacancies and offering their guidance on training courses, volunteering, reskilling or apprenticeships.
Whether it is support to get back into work, updating your CV, completing an application form or getting job searching tips, advisers from local Work Clubs and Job Centre Plus will be on hand to help. Some care sector employers will also be recruiting and promoting available vacancies during the event.
Thinking about self-employment? Business start-up advisers Wenta will be giving help on developing business skills, how to access finance and improve your business confidence.
Central Bedfordshire Council’s Social Care Health and Housing team is working in partnership with local Housing Associations, Job Centre Plus, the Baptist Church and being supported by various public and private sector partners.
Councillor Carole Hegley, the council’s Executive Member for Social Care and Housing, said: “This is an amazing opportunity right on your doorstep and I hope that people from the area will come and get the help they need with planning their next step.
“Trained advisers and industry experts will be there to offer guidance, so come along and find out how you can secure new opportunities or learn new skills.”
