A WIDE variety of jobs across a number of sectors will be on offer next week when the Malvern Jobs Fair comes to town.
Supported by Malvern Hills District Council in partnership with Worcestershire County Council and Jobcentre Plus, next Wednesday’s event at the library on Graham Road will promote the latest vacancies, provide information for careers and apprenticeships, and will also help people with training advice and self-employment options.
It runs from 11am until 2pm.
Simon Smith, economic development manager at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “We had great feedback from last year’s event and the customer feedback surveys found that a third of people went for information and advice, whilst over a third were either employed or not claiming a benefit.
“So that we’re meeting the needs of our local community and those interested in attending, we’ve introduced a new careers hub.
“This will be an informal setting where people who might be looking for a change in career can come and speak to experts from different industries and gain an insight into the culture and requirements of different businesses, as well as get the usual careers advice.”
In addition to the careers hub, there will be general and specialist advice from Worcestershire Apprenticeships, the National Careers Service, Heart of Worcester College and Worcester University Business School.
Employers attending the jobs fair include Audley Ellerslie, who will be recruiting for their new luxury retirement village, Payara (IT software based on the Malvern Hills Science Park), Riverford Organic Franchising, Lovell (Morgan Sindall Group), Bradfords Building Supplies, Sanctuary Housing, Fortis Living, the NHS, the Army and the RAF.
Those attending will also be able to get help with their CVs and with job searches.
There will also be advice available from the Natwest community banker for anyone who needs help with managing finances or dealing with debt.
The Malvern Jobs Fair is free to attend and open to everyone.
