Meet local employers
There’ll be displays and people to talk to about employment and apprenticeship opportunities – including engineering, construction, logistics, retail and lots more. Some employers will have job vacancies on the day that you can find out more about and take an application form.
Find out about training courses and volunteering
There are loads of courses and volunteering opportunities available across the borough for people who are out of work and want to develop new skills to widen their employment opportunities – as well as for people in work who want to try something new. A variety of local training providers will be on hand to let you know what’s on offer and how to get help deciding what’s right for you. More »
