Get ready for your new career – the region’s biggest Jobs Expo is back

16:26, Monday, 4th September 2023

North Lincolnshire Jobs Expo returns this month, with hundreds of opportunities for everyone who wants to change their future for the better.

Some of the region’s leading employers – including the NHS, Tayto, Lebus Upholstery, 2 Sisters, Rocal and British Steel – will be at the Baths Hall, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe, on Thursday 14 September, from 12.30pm to 4pm.

They will be joined by dozens of other employers from the hospitality, teaching, manufacturing, logistics, public sector and health and social care sectors, including McDonalds, Ongo, Lebus Upholstery, the RAF, PGL Travel, Utility Warehouse – and many more.

Organised by North Lincolnshire Council in partnership with the Jobcentre and the Department for Work and Pensions, the Jobs Expo is the latest in a recent series of these popular events, which have proved highly successful in matching local employers with hundreds of local people eager to take on new roles.

As well as stalls from more than 40 local employers there will be information for jobseekers on benefits, childcare, travel and training.

Leader of North Lincolnshire Council Rob Waltham said: “The Jobs Expo has a proven track record when it comes to matching employers up with jobseekers keen to take a step up and find a role.

“The marketplace is very competitive right now, with employers competing with each other to attract the right person – now has never been a better time for people to take a step up.

“Experts will be on hand with advice and support for anyone who needs it – you could walk away with a whole new future for you and your family.”

The Expo is targeted at people looking to return to work or a career change, young people breaking into the jobs market for the first time and anyone who simply wants more money in their pocket at the end of the month.

Jobhunters are encouraged to bring their CVs and be prepared to take part in on-the-spot interviews – you could walk out with a new job.
