York’s biggest jobs fair is back
Today, Yorks Jobs Fair returned to support those looking for work or wanting support into training or employment.
From 10am to 2pm at the York Railway Institute (RI), Queen Street, around 70 employers, training providers and career advisors including John Lewis, Hiscox and Work With York are expected along with some 700 visitors.
Funded and organised by City of York Council in partnership with Job Centre Plus, this free event brings together employers, employment support agencies, and education and training providers to offer local people over 4000 job opportunities, career information and advice.
Cllr Keith Aspden, executive member for economic development and community engagement, said: “The fair is aimed at those looking for employment, people considering a change of job or career and those who would like to develop new skills and improve their career prospects. This is always a really worthwhile event, with a breadth of career opportunities on offer, so do go along if you can.“
Cllr Keith Myers, executive member for education, children and young people said: “This free event in the centre of York offers a great opportunity to meet with top employers and training providers who work across the region. This is a great opportunity to get face-to-face advice and career guidance.”
