Telford’s Online Jobs Fair this September

Written on July 29, 2021

Telford & Wrekin Council is to host Telford’s Online Jobs Fair this September to support residents who are looking for work.

Whether you are currently unemployed as a result of the pandemic, looking for a career change or new to the jobs market after finishing school or college this event will help you find your next opportunity.

The event is free to attend and will also aim to help local businesses who have been affected by the pandemic and are now looking to recruit new staff as they get back up and running.

Coinciding with the end of the Government’s furlough scheme, the event will be hosted by the council’s Job Box and Enterprise Telford team and presented by Paul Shuttleworth from BBC Radio Shropshire who will talk through all of the latest jobs vacancies available locally and how to apply.

Some top employers from around the borough will join the event to talk specifically about the vacancies they have on offer.

The event will take place on Thursday 16 September from 1pm.

A series of Live Facebook events are also planned during the week (Monday 13, Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 September) over on Job Box’s Facebook page where audiences will be given top tips around CVs, interviews and how to gain new skills.

Councillor David Wright, Cabinet Member for Economy, Housing, and Transport & Infrastructure said: “Telford’s Online Jobs Fair will bring residents all of the latest job vacancies from around the borough at what we know will be a very uncertain time for residents as we see the Government’s furlough scheme end. Some industries have been heavily affected by the pandemic but there are roles out there in our borough and this event is about connecting people to these jobs which are available right now.”

Councillor Shirley Reynolds, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People, Education and Lifelong Learning said: “We know that young people are amongst the hardest hit as a result of the pandemic with many of the sectors they work in having been severely affected by the lockdown. If you are aged 16- 24 year old and looking for work in Telford & Wrekin I would urge you to book onto this event to hear about the many opportunities which are available.”
