In February, I was pleased to host our first Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair in partnership with our local Job Centre Plus and the Queen’s Theatre.
We had hoped to host our second fair this autumn, however, owing to the coronavirus, it will not be possible to hold this in the same way. Whilst we are not able to organise a physical fair, my team have liaised with the local Job Centre who have advised of employers currently recruiting for local opportunities and we are therefore pleased to announce that we will be going digital and hosting our first Virtual Jobs Fair on Friday 2 October.
Starting at 10AM, participants will be able to hear from three employers, UPS, the British Transport Police, and Network Rail, on their current vacancies, the recruitment process and will have the opportunity to field questions directly to them.
Each employer will have their own session, which will proceed in the following order:
- 10-10.30AM – Network Rail
- 11-11.30AM – British Transport Police
- 12-12.30PM – UPS
To register, please email my office with your full name and address, listing which sessions you wish to enrol on. My office can be contacted via – Julia.firstname.lastname@example.org Register early to avoid disappointment.
I hope this event will be helpful to constituents who are looking to re-enter the job market or those that may wish to try something new. In my role as a Cabinet Office Minister, I am responsible too for the Civil Service Apprenticeship Scheme and am working to open fulfilling opportunities across government to talented young people. Whilst this Virtual Jobs Fair focusses on immediate local vacancies, plans are also in place for a more apprenticeship driven event across a range of sectors, which my team and I hope to share with you soon.
