Employment and skills specialist Seetec will celebrate the second national UK Employability Day on Friday 14th July with a series of job fairs focussed on getting jobseekers back into work.
The events which will be co-ordinated alongside the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) will be held in Manchester, Wigan and Oldham and will focus on bringing together local business and job seekers.
During the day, a number of local employers, employment providers and training providers will attend the Seetec centres with live vacancies to fill and support and advice to offer to help the jobseekers make that all important first impression.
Seetec customers will have a really valuable opportunity to meet with the employers to learn more about the available positions and complete application forms there and then.
In Manchester, hundreds of Seetec customers will be in attendance, as well as, companies such youth centre Factory Youth Zone who provide a unique safe place for young people aged 8 – 19 across Manchester and Antz Junction which is home to a social enterprise, a long list of charities, business and the Bold Work Ready Training Academy. Plus RSPCA Bury Oldham and Manchester City Council along with 22 other businesses.
The day will consist of a mini-employment session to ensure all customers are revved up, as well as, an exhibition with local organisations who can offer short work experience opportunities.
Last time Seetec held an event like this in 2016, 75 candidates secured interviews with 15 employers including Argos retails, Travelodge and Grosvenor Casino.
Helen Tomlinson, Seetec National Operations Director said, “Celebrating Employability Day in this way as a great opportunity for our customers to meet with more employers in their local community. We are delighted with the support employers have shown, demonstrating their commitment to helping local people back to work. Employment providers like Seetec support 100,000’s of people across the UK back to work and job fairs like these are a great way to help more people achieve their potential”.
