Around 250 visitors are expected to visit Acomb Jobs Fair next month, where they will have the chance to meet over 30 employers and training providers from local areas.
Held at Acomb Parish Church Hall, 18A Front St, YO24 3BZ, on Wednesday 6 November between 10am and 2pm, the free 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, ahead of York Business Week 11-15 November.
The event is funded by 4Community Growth and organised by City of York Council and York Learning in partnership with Job Centre Plus.
Cllr Andrew Waller, Executive Member for Economy and Strategic Planning, said: “The Acomb Jobs Fair is in its fourth year and is increasingly popular with employers and prospective employees. The fair continues to grow since its launch in 2015 and 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.”
