Jobseekers in Ashfield and Mansfield will be able to find out about job vacancies and training opportunities at job fairs later this month.

They will be able to find out about new career pathways, volunteering, job vacancies, apprenticeships opportunities, self-employment and career advice support.

Ashfield and Mansfield District Councils, Vision West Nottinghamshire College and Jobcentre Plus are working together to put on the events.

A variety of local employers, training providers, recruitment agencies and support organisations will be attending, providing a range of work and training vacancies as well as career guidance and support to help people make the right decisions about their future.

Coun Kate Allsop, member for economic regeneration at Mansfield District Council, said: “Looking for work in this competitive job market is becoming increasingly difficult and these job fairs aim to give local people the best possible chance to find out about job and training opportunities.

“I would strongly encourage people to come along and take advantage of the support available from local employers and organisations.”

Coun Warren Nuttall, member for regeneration, community welfare and corporate service at Ashfield District Council said: “The jobs fairs will provide local people looking for work, training and volunteering openings with a chance to find out what help and support is on offer and to meet local business with opportunities all available in one place.

“I would urge residents to come along and find out more about how we can help them find new work or training.”

The Ashfield jobs fair takes place on 19th September from 10am-3pm at Festival Hall Leisure Centre, Kirkby.

The Mansfield jobs fair will be held at Mansfield Civic Centre, Chesterfield Road South on 26th September from 11am-4pm.
