The region’s biggest jobs fair takes place next week, with hundreds of opportunities for anyone who wants to change their future.

Some of the region’s leading employers – including Ongo, Bupa Healthcare, CANPACK UK and Rocal – will be at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe, next Wednesday, 9 February 2022, from 2.30pm to 6pm.

They will be joined by dozens of other employers from the retail, hospitality, manufacturing, logistics, public sector and health and social care sectors, including Cooplands, Sawcliffe Manor, the British Army, 2 Sisters, British Steel, Humberside Fire and Rescue, Hales Group, Demeter House School – and many more.

Organised by North Lincolnshire Council in partnership with the Jobcentre and the Department for Work and Pensions, the event follows the success of the first Jobs Expo last October, which saw many local people take on new roles.

Anyone looking for an exciting new opportunity, or for the next step in their career, is urged to take advantage of the current jobs market, with companies looking for committed workers determined to improve outcomes for themselves and their families.

Pupils from Years 11 and 13 are also invited to speak to employers about the many apprenticeship schemes and Kickstart jobs currently on offer for young people.

These provide a fantastic route into training, permanent paid employment and a fulfilling career.

Representatives from the National Careers Service will be in attendance for anyone needing advice and support on their employment journey.

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

The Jobs Expo will be opened virtually by Scunthorpe MP Holly Mumby-Croft, and North Lincolnshire Council leader Cllr Rob Waltham will also be in attendance.

Cllr Waltham said: “The kind of North Lincolnshire we want to build relies on high-quality sustainable jobs and a well-trained, motivated workforce. The Jobs Expo helps us go a long way towards achieving this.

“The marketplace is very competitive right now and we are seeing employers competing hard to attract the right kind of employees, so there has never been a better time for people to take a step up.

“Supporting businesses to get the people and skills they need will help build back our economy better, improving the outcomes for every family in North Lincolnshire.”

The event is taking place on Wednesday 9 February 2022 from 2.30pm to 6pm at The Baths Hall, Doncaster Road, DN15 7RG.
