In partnership, Leicestershire County Council, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, Job Centre Plus and North Warwickshire & Hinckley College are organising a Jobs and Skills Fair at The Gallery at the Atkins, Hinckley on 12th March 2014 (12.30pm – 6pm) to offer an opportunity for attendees to gather knowledge and information on a range of career options particularly within the construction, engineering and the logistics sector.
We are trying to encourage as many employers as possible to attend the event to highlight the range of careers available locally to people who maybe out of work or wanting to improve their skills.
In addition we are proposing to hold a range of short seminars from apprenticeships through to starting your own business.
If you or any local business would like to have a stand or run a short seminar or you would like to know more about the event please contact Nicola Lees, Communities & Places Officer on 0116 305 7986 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Hinckley £15,000 - Cash for your Community!
Leicestershire County Council has made available £320,000 per year for local communities to invest in local improvement of their choice. The funding is available through the 25 Community Forums.
This Community Forum Budget is not a regular grant fund, because local residents are involved in all aspects of the process and they will be making the decision which projects should receive a share of the funds.
Community groups can put forward project ideas for which they are seeking funding. All those project proposals are then made available on the forum’s website so residents can view and comment on them. The community groups and other local residents then come together for a Decision Night to discuss the projects and vote for their favourites.
All proposals will benefit from advice by a panel of experts, including advice on further sources of funding.
