Calling all local employers! The event which encourages companies in Cheshire East to employ local people returns next month.
Just the Job, a jobs and careers fair, will be held at the Manchester Metropolitan University, in Crewe, on Wednesday, April 28 (1pm – 6pm).
Cheshire East Council is looking for local companies to get involved and match their job vacancies to local people, of all ages, who are seeking to develop their careers or are keen to re-enter the jobs’ market.
The event is being organised, in partnership, by Cheshire East Council, Connexions, Jobcentre Plus, South Cheshire Chamber and the hosts, Manchester Metropolitan University.
What will the event include?
· FREE stall in exhibitors’ market place to showcase your business.
· Opportunities to present your business to prospective employees.
· Advice on staff development and training.
· Opportunity to develop and create networks with local companies and training organisations.
Cheshire East Councillor, Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member with responsibility for Prosperity said;
“The success of last year’s event is evidence of how Just the Job can benefit the local area. The current economic climate continues to ensure difficult times for local businesses. This event offers free stalls to exhibitors and the chance to speak face-to-face with potential employees.
“Business support agencies will also be on hand to provide practical help and guidance. I would urge any local company to get on board and see how Just the Job can provide a timely boost to traders and job-seekers alike.”
South Cheshire Chamber Manager, Paul Colman, said
“It will be an ideal opportunity for any business, large or small, to not only present its recruitment opportunities to prospective employees but to also receive advice on staff development and training.”
Trevor Brown, Business Development Manager at Manchester Metropolitan University in Cheshire, said:
“The University strives to meet the needs of local businesses and Just the Job fits perfectly with the University’s aims to work with local businesses, the public sector and the community.
“The event shows that local companies are supporting business growth in Cheshire East by employing graduates from their local university, retaining knowledge and expertise in the region.”
