An exciting new employment event is happening next month to give residents the skills needed to take on new roles and earn more cash.
The ‘Get that job’ event, brought to you by the North Lincolnshire Jobs Expo, follows a new approach to support local people seeking employment. It will take place at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe on Wednesday 7 June from 12.30pm to 4pm. No appointment is necessary, just pop along on the day.
Following an initial informal one to one conversation, attendees will be directed to workshops and advice sessions tailored to their specific needs.
Support available on the day will include CV and application writing workshops, IT skills, personal wellbeing support, alternative careers information and more.
As well as providing guidance and practical support and giving attendees the opportunity to expand their skills, the event aims to give job seekers the confidence to apply for vacancies and ‘get that job’.
Some of the region’s leading employers and recruitment agencies including 2 Sisters, North Lincolnshire Council, Humberside Police, Ongo Recruitment and DN Colleges Group, will also be in attendance on the day with vacancies that can be applied for.
Leader of North Lincolnshire Council Rob Waltham said: “These events have made a huge different to job seekers and companies looking for staff.
“This event compliments what is offered at the Jobs Expo, giving North Lincolnshire residents the very best support to be able to make the most of all the local opportunities – both to increase their skills and get work but also get better jobs and earn more money.
“Anyone looking for work should get themselves along and take advantage of what’s on offer.”
Organised by North Lincolnshire Council in partnership with the Jobcentre and the Department for Work and Pensions, Get that job is the latest in a recent series of these popular events, which have proved highly successful in matching local employers with local people and giving them the skills to take on new roles. This not only increases self-esteem and wellbeing but gives the local economy a welcome boost.
