A ‘Live Local Work Local’ job fair is set to offer support for people seeking employment later this month.
The free event is being held on Tuesday 15th May, from 10am until 2pm, in Ellesmere Port Civic Hall.
Employers, recruitment agents and training providers will be available to chat to jobseekers, dispensing advice on finding a job or enrolling on a training course.
Among the employers who will be attending are Regatta, Wagamama and Kier.
Cheshire Police will also be attending the event to offer guidance to those considering joining the force.
Meanwhile, staff from Chester University will on hand be able to help people looking for information on how to enrol onto higher education courses.
The Ellesmere Port Work Zone will be open throughout the event to offer skills and employment advice.
Lisa Harris, Cheshire West and Chester Council’s director of place strategy, said: “The Live Local Work Local Job fair is a fantastic opportunity for people who are not in education or employment to come along to a friendly and supportive event so they can meet the right people who will be able to help them to achieve their employment or education goals.
“The employers and education providers will provide important advice so as to direct people on the right path to a successful future in education or employment in west Cheshire.”
And for those who are thinking about starting their own business, advisors will be on hand to discuss how to start and where to get the appropriate advice and support.
Experts will also be on hand to help with residents who’ve got wellbeing or money concerns.
