A recruitment event taking place at Wellingborough’s Tresham College on October 18 will hope to bring employers closer to those looking for work.
From 4pm until 6pm, the campus will invite potential employees to find out more about job opportunities from the organisations attending, as well as training pathways available to help them into work including apprenticeships, part-time courses and T Levels.
Cheryl Needham, head of adult and community learning at Tresham College, said: “This is a really exciting event for employers to meet hundreds of people who are actively seeking opportunities and for people to talk to companies who are looking to invest in new talent.
“Nearly 40 per cent of people are in low-paid work, but could develop their skills and step up the promotion ladder with the right encouragement.
"We want to welcome them to meet employers who are looking to help them achieve their full potential.”
Cllr David Brackenbury, NNC executive member for growth and regeneration, said: “The council is a key partner in the recruitment, skills and careers event and is proud to work with Tresham College and Jobcentre Plus.
"As a key local employer, we offer a variety of quality job opportunities for all skills and levels in a trusted organisation that values its staff and customers.
“In addition to this, as the local authority for the key growth area of North Northamptonshire, we provide a wide range of support for our fantastic business community, and are pleased to welcome and work with new businesses of all shapes and sizes, and those that are already well established in the area.”
Michelle Wass, Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) employer adviser manager for Northamptonshire, added: “Jobcentre Plus is delighted to be working collaboratively with North Northants Council and Tresham College to bring this innovative event to our customers and the residents of North Northamptonshire, so supporting the local community.”
