My Land is a brand new event for 2017 and is taking place at the Easton and Otley College on the 29th March. The event has been designed to give an insight into careers in various land based industries, and specifically the opportunity to work with local employers.
The geographical landscape of the region means that Norfolk has a huge range of industries that work on the land or care for it. These industries cover a broad range of skills and jobs , and My Land is a great opportunity to meet these organisations, but more importantly, find out about the roles that are within in the sector. This event covers Agriculture, Land Conservation, Animal Care, Ground keeping, Pest Control, Broads Conservation, and many more.
This first event is a mini event and open to all young people. There is a chance to participate in a number of workshops, including an employer speed networking event, which should broaden their view of opportunities available. They will also get a chance to participate in various employability workshops on CV writing and interview skills. These workshops will be delivered by employers from the sector.
The event is also open to College, University Students, and those looking for employment will get a chance to participate in an "Opportunities Fair" with lots of sessions planned to enable young people to discuss future placements, internships and apprenticeship opportunities. These sessions will cover broad range of career opportunities available.
Morning (9:15am - 12:30pm) - Schools/Colleges/University Students/Young People 16+
