Jobs Fair at Valley Leisure Centre
10 September 2015
Over fifteen companies will be showcasing their current job opportunities at a Jobs Fair which will be taking place at the Valley Leisure Centre on Thursday 17 September between 11am and 3pm. Organised by Rathcoole Neighbourhood Renewal Economic Sub Group, the aim is to open and widen opportunities for employment and development for local residents. Employers will be in attendance from a number of sectors including retail, sales, motoring, administration and care services.
Councillor Paul Hamill, Chair of the Rathcoole Neighbourhood Renewal Partnership (RNRP) says, “We would like to invite all members of the local community to come along. This is a unique opportunity that wouldn’t be possible otherwise, where members of the community who are currently unemployed or under-employed will have the chance to meet with employers face to face and under one roof.”
Councillor Hamill continues, “Bytes and EOS will be available on the day to help you with creating a C.V. and completing online job applications. The Department for Employment and Learning Careers Advisors will be there to help those who may want a change in career or careers advice. Volunteer Now will be on hand to provide information on volunteering opportunities for those who would like some work experience or for those unable to work but want to give a few hours to help out. Self-employment routes can also be explored with Mallusk Enterprise and Dave’s Driving School providing advice and guidance in this area. This event is open to everyone so make sure you come along and enjoy this amazing opportunity right on your doorstep!”
