I am organising an Apprenticeship Fair, which will incorporate my 4th Jobs Fair at The Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone on Thursday 10th November to put people looking for work, in touch with the local firms who have vacancies to fill.
New jobs and apprenticeships are being created, both locally and across the region every week. Shepway has many growing businesses, both new and old, which are looking for staff. Despite this, I understand that for many who are unemployed often the main challenge is finding the right opportunities; and this is where the jobs fair comes in.
Last year many opportunities were created and we know that some were successful in finding new opportunities as a direct consequence of the Folkestone jobs fair.
I hope that this year will prove as successful as 2013, 2014 and 2015 helping many more Folkestone people find new career paths. We also have seminars providing employment and training advice on the day. It will serve as an opportunity for all job seekers out there to connect with jobs right for them.
