Thousands of local jobs will be showcased at the North Lincolnshire Jobs Expo 2021.

Some of the region’s leading employers – including North Lincolnshire Council, EMJ Plastics and 2 Sisters – will be among dozens of companies attending the event on Tuesday, 19 October 2021 at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe.

Anyone looking to break into the jobs market, improve their career prospects, or simply see more money in their back pocket at the end of the month is encouraged to go along.

The Expo is also targeted at people looking to return to work after the Covid-19 pandemic with the number of people claiming universal credit already dropping from 5,065 in July to 4,900 in August.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “There are a great many jobs available across the area and a similar number of people looking for work.

“We must be in a position to support our businesses to get the people and the skills they need to meet their ambitious plans for growth.

“The plans we have for development across the area are heavily focussed on creating high-quality, well-paid, sustainable jobs, and Government is taking those plans very seriously with millions of pounds of investment – even with the number of vacancies now there are more in the pipeline.

“We’re also seeing, because of a competitive marketplace, employers competing hard to attract good people, so there has never been a better time for people to change their future.

“A strong, motivated workforce will help build back our economy better, improving the outcomes for everyone in North Lincolnshire.”

Jobseekers will be able to speak to employers face-to-face and discover the right opportunity for them. They are also encouraged to bring copies of their CVs along to discuss their prospects.

Many businesses will arrange interviews for prospective employees – some may even hire people on the spot.

The Jobs Expo is taking place from 2.30pm – 7pm at The Baths Hall, Doncaster Road, DN15 7RG. (Please note, The Baths Hall operates a strict Covid-secure policy.)
