Local businesses invited to meet workforce of the future
Released: Friday, 04 October 2019
Local employers are being encouraged to take part in a free Careers Fair organised by Adur & Worthing Councils and help provide a leg up onto the career ladder for hundreds of people.
The event brings together local schools, colleges and businesses, to offer support and advice to those seeking new opportunities at Worthing Assembly Hall on Wednesday 16th October 2019.
Business leaders will get the chance to meet skilled individuals who are looking for either their first job or a change of career, and share what opportunities are available.
The fair is free to attend with more than 1,600 young people from secondary schools attending from 9am to 3pm. From 3pm to 6pm it will be opened to those at college, parents and the wider public.
Councillor Brian Boggis, Adur District Council's Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
“This Careers Fair is a fantastic opportunity for our thriving business community to meet new talent. I would definitely recommend local employers registering as soon as possible to make the most out of the benefits of this event.”
Councillor Kevin Jenkins, Worthing Borough Council's Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
“With exhibitors from across all sectors, the Careers Fair provides an important opportunity for people of all ages, and experience to meet companies and businesses in the local area dedicated to supporting the local employment economy.”
The day is split into sessions to provide time for prospective employees to have meaningful conversations with local companies and apply to jobs. Local employers will be able to promote their company to the local community and recruit.
The event includes a Q&A with a professional panel focusing on pathways into employment, an area dedicated to promoting current vacancies and regular breaks with refreshments and lunch for stall holders.
Top tips will include advice on CV writing and finding a job, as well as guidance for those looking to change careers.
