The three Stoke-on-Trent MPs have joined forces with Hanley Job Centre to host a Jobs Fair for local jobseekers this Friday.
Numerous local employers have signed up to attend the Jobs Fair in a huge push to advertise current vacancies and help jobseekers find employment. Hundreds of jobseekers have already signed up to attend and as well as being able to speak with local employers, training and support will be on offer.
Whilst the country tries to return to normality and push through the COVID-19 pandemic, there are some who find themselves coming out of the pandemic without employment. The three Stoke-on-Trent MPs were keen to team up with the Department for Work and Pensions to organise an event that services residents from all corners of the city. Jobseekers will have the opportunity to speak to their local MPs and share their stories and experience with employment.
As we recover from the pandemic many local businesses and organisations are looking to recruit, with a fantastic range of opportunities on offer. Many industries such as manufacturing and hospitality have huge numbers of available vacancies that local businesses need to fill to operate. With huge numbers of job vacancies sat waiting to be taken, jobseekers will not have to search for long.
Jack Brereton MP for Stoke-on-Trent South said:
“Whilst it is fantastic to see unemployment continues to fall, there are still residents out there in need of a job. Its great to see so many amazing opportunities on offer in our city just waiting to be filled. Only through being in work can you progress, to earn more and achieve your full potential.
I am extremely grateful to the DWP staff for working with us to get this put together. Friday’s Jobs Fair will be a really great opportunity for jobseekers to find employment but also for employers to find the staff desperately needed. I am looking forward to being able to speak with my constituents who attend on Friday and hopefully securing them a great new job opportunity.”
Jonathan Gullis MP for Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke commented:
“This jobs fair is a fantastic opportunity for people to come along and see a selection of our great businesses. It is great to have such a range of companies attending, ranging from local enterprises to companies that span the whole country.
With job vacancies at a record high there has never been a better time to be a job seeker and I would urge as many people to come along as possible this Friday.”
Jo Gideon MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central added:
“I am delighted to be supporting the Stoke-on-Trent jobs fair this Friday. This event is a great way to bring jobseekers and employers together, and with numerous local employers and hundreds of job seekers already booked in, it is a fantastic opportunity to explore the range of local job opportunities. Employers are keen to recruit, so there has never been a better time to find out what jobs and training are available.”
