More than 600 job-related opportunities will be on offer at the annual Get Oldham Working (GOW) jobs fair on Thursday 26th September.
With a variety of jobs, apprenticeships and work experience openings on offer from employers across the borough and beyond, this is a great opportunity if you’re looking for work or a new challenge.
You’ll also get the chance to present you CV to a potential new boss.
Councillor Shaid Mushtaq, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “The Get Oldham Working jobs fair continues to grow, and last year we had more than 1,500 people through the doors. It is a great achievement to get so many employers and training providers under one roof offering so many work-related opportunities to our residents. Our jobs fair benefits everyone, no matter what your current circumstances are. Whether you are job hunting for the first time, looking to return to work, searching for the next step in your career or even work experience to aid your university application, we would urge you to come on the day and speak with the employers.
Make sure you bring an up to date CV and plenty of copies, so you can hand them out. Dress like you would do for a job interview too – it helps to make a good impression.
Debenhams, O2, HPP (Hills Panel Products), Metrolink, Wilmott Dixon, GMP, McDonalds, Guinness Housing, Miocare, Galliford Try, Manchester Airport, NSL and Housing United are just some of the employers which have already confirmed they will be attending.
Training opportunities will also be on offer for anyone looking to develop their skillset in a range of fields, from introductions to IT to basic Maths and English courses.
Staff from the GOW will be on hand to advise about jobs, careers and access to training across a wide range of sectors within Oldham. There will also be plenty of space to complete any job applications that you pick up on the day, with additional support available in case you get suck with any questions.
