Calling all Flintshire employers

Published: 19/02/2016

You are invited to take part in a Jobs, Skills & Training Event to be held in April. The event will be held on Thursday, 14 April 2016 from 10am – 3pm at the Civic Hall, Wepre Drive in Connah’s Quay and, if you are an employer with positions to fill now or in the near future, then this is the event for you. Communities First Flintshire, Jobcentre Plus and Careers Wales are working in partnership to organise this event aimed at adults and young people seeking work. Applicants can take advantage of ‘on the day’ support to fill in application forms and will be offered CV reviews. Cllr Derek Butler, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “In 2015 this event attracted 800 attendees. It has been developed to support employment in Flintshire and bring job opportunities to local people giving employers the opportunity to meet candidates face to face. “Last year over 30 employers and organisations attended and 157 individuals were successful in securing employment.” Careers Wales will have a stand at the event, along with Communities for Work and LIFT – the Welsh Government scheme whose aim is to provide training and employment opportunities across Wales for people who meet the specific criteria. If you are a local employer and would be interested in booking a stand for the event or require further information, please contact Paul Murphy at Jobcentre Plus on 07748881647 before Thursday 17th March 2016. The Civic Hall is very central and has excellent parking facilities.
