HUNDREDS of people are expected to attend York Jobs Fair tomorrow.

About 50 employers, support agencies, education and training providers will be at the event to highlight job opportunities and share advice with anyone looking for work or support into training or employment.

Among those attending the event are representatives from Hiscox, Flamingo Land, First York, Marks and Spencer, Haxby Medical Group, McDonalds, the RAF, York St John University, NHS, York Hospital Facilities Management, Gough and Kelly, The Grand hotel, Aldi, Marriott, Home Bargains, and Whitbread.


The event is from 10am to 2pm on Wednesday, October 6, at the York Railway Institute in Queen Street.

Funded and organised by City of York Council in partnership with Job Centre Plus, the council will also be recruiting for multiple roles.

These include personal support service workers needed to provide personal care and support to customers living in their own homes as well as support workers to work with independent living community residents.

Cllr Andrew Waller, executive member for economy and strategic planning said: “The fair is aimed at anyone looking for employment, people considering a change of job or career and those who would like to develop new skills and gain new qualifications.

“These events are always hugely popular, both with employers and prospective employees, so I’d encourage anyone who’s looking to further their career to go along.”

Wendy Mangan, employer and partnership manager at York Jobcentre said: “We have a fantastic range of employers, across multiple sectors, attending the Job Fair. This is a great opportunity for those seeking employment to meet so many employers in one place and find out more about the roles available”.
