Start your year with a new career at the region’s biggest Jobs Expo

12:30, Friday, 19th January 2024

The North Lincolnshire Jobs Expo returns next month, with hundreds of opportunities for anyone who wants to make 2024 their year.

Some of the region’s leading employers – including the NHS, 2 Sisters, Rocal, the RAF, G4S, Ongo and British Steel – are expected to be at the Baths Hall, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe, on Wednesday 7 February 2024, from 2pm to 6pm.

They will be joined by dozens of other employers from the retail, hospitality, teaching, manufacturing, logistics, public sector and health and social care sectors.

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 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 careers market for the first time and anyone who simply wants more money in their pocket at the end of the month.

An exit poll of jobseekers at a previous last Jobs Expo found that of the more than 700 people who attended the event, the majority said it had been worthwhile them attending, with 64 per cent saying they would definitely be applying for vacancies and another 14 per cent said they were considering doing so.

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

There is no need to book your place – just turn up at the Baths Hall on 7 February between 2pm and 6pm.

Any businesses who wish to showcase their vacancies at the Expo can contact the council via events@northlincs.gov.uk. Deadline for exhibitors is 29 January 2024.
