Employment and training opportunities at South Holland Jobs Fair attracts 550 attendees

Jobs Fair standThe annual South Holland Jobs Fair took place on Tuesday 1 May.
550 attendees - 200 more than last year's event - engaged with 50 employers and training providers from a range of industries recruiting in the South Holland area.

The popular event, held at The Castle Sports Complex, is organised by South Holland District Council and The Department for Work and Pensions.

Councillor Nick Worth, Portfolio Holder for Growth and Commercialisation, said: "It's been great to see so many people attending today, and finding out more about the employment and training opportunities in our district.
"What makes this such a popular event is that it's not just a way to find work if you're unemployed, there's lots of ideas here if you want training for career development, or if you'd just like to see what other employment options are available. Employers also benefit by having access to hundreds of people with a wide range of skills who are actively looking for career opportunities.
"There's also advice on starting up your own business too, so it very much reflects the council's commitment not only to jobs, but to high-quality, high-skilled employment."

South Holland Jobs Fair will return again in 2019. Employers and trainers can find out more on 01775 764895 or economicdevelopment@sholland.gov.uk
