We are happy to announce another successful Jobs Fair!
Our Job Fairs are employability events we put on to host top companies in the Greater Manchester area, looking to recruit staff for a variety of positions. These events give our learners a chance to meet these employers and book interviews or work placements, in hopes of gaining full-time employment. These events have seen great successes, and we are proud to offer such a great service to our learners.
This Job Fair was particularly successful. Two top companies at this Job Fair were Guidant Global, an award-winning recruitment agency, and British Airways, a leading transport company in the UK. These employers came to our Job Fair looking to recruit for warehousing, customer service, and contact centres, and we are happy to report that they recruited some of our learners to fill these roles. This means that these Job Fairs represent great opportunities, not just for our learners, but for local employers too, and demonstrates The Job Gym’s commitment to helping every learner into employment.
Another function of our Job Fairs is to help our learners access employability services and guidance. In this Job Fair, we were fortunate to have the National Careers Service attend again. They found our event, again, to be “really successful”. This was due to its high attendance, both from learners and employers, and the fact that the NCS were able to offer advice and guidance to our learners in record numbers. They also managed to book several follow-up appointments with some learners, to continue their professional development.
Update: Due to the pandemic, our Job Fairs have been put on hold. We apologise, and hope to be able to start running these events again as soon as it is safe to do so.
