OVER 400 JOBS ON TUESDAY - COME ALONG OR PASS ONTO ANYONE WHO YOU KNOW NEEDS A JOB
Whether you’re young, old, a school leaver or an experienced individual in search of a new job, Thanet’s first ever MP’s Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair could be just what you need to land a new role or climb the first rung of the careers ladder. On Tuesday 26th June, 10am – 3pm, at The Winter Gardens in Margate, Chris Grayling MP, Minister for Employment, will be opening Thanet’s first ever MPs’ Jobs and Apprenticeships fair.
With over 50 stands, whether you are interested in a career in engineering or marketing, retail or finance, we have something for everyone! For one day, The Winter Gardens will transform into Jobs ‘R’ Us; we have literally hundreds of jobs on offer- and all under one roof!
We cannot ignore that unemployment is a real concern for us in Thanet; it is after all what made us want to do something specifically for jobseekers in the first place. However people have really been welcoming the idea and saying that they’re pleased to see local representatives taking some practical action and doing something positive to tackle the problem.
I have been encouraging our local businesses to take on an apprentice and last July, I even took on one myself. It’s been a great year adn it has been of benefit to us both. With this in mind, I will also be at the fair with my own stand, hopefully helping another young person get their foot on that first rung of the career ladder.
We have organised over 50 stands for businesses ranging from small independent businesses to some of the biggest high street names. Pfizer and Thanet Leisureforce have kindly sponsored the event and will be on-hand offering jobs and apprenticeships. We also have free CV writing and interview skill workshops advice for those interested in turning a great idea in a business. Whether you are looking for a job or know someone who is, everyone is welcome on the day and entry is completely free. Why not come along and join us and see whether you can find your next job!
