Find your perfect job at Torbay Jobs Fair

22nd February 2019

Categories: Latest News

Anyone looking for a new job can meet with Torbay and South Devon employers, who are actively recruiting, at the Torbay Jobs Fair in Torquay on Friday 8 March.

Devon and Cornwall Police, NHS, MIDAS and South Devon College are just some of the businesses who will be recruiting on the day.

Due to the success of the event, this year’s Jobs Fair is now taking place at the Riviera International Conference Centre.

The Torbay Jobs Fair, which is delivered by TDA, Torbay Council and Jobcentre Plus in partnership, conveniently brings a range of employers from across Torbay and South Devon together in one space.

Torbay’s Elected Mayor, Gordon Oliver, said: “This event continues to grow and delivers excellent outcomes for the businesses and people looking for a new job in Torbay. In October, the Jobs Fair helped generate 311 job interviews, matching job vacancies with skills to create 60 job outcomes. The event welcomes businesses across all sectors and we are looking forward to helping more people find permanent, temporary and apprenticeship roles.”

In October, just under 700 candidates met with 71 employers from across Torbay, who shared a range of opportunities with their company.

Connor Conneely, Economic Development Officer at TDA, said: “There will be live vacancies on offer from local employers across all sectors including hospitality, care, construction and retail. Getting to meet the employers face to face to discuss the roles available and its suitability for you provides a real advantage to getting the right job. Over 90 people have successfully secured work through the Jobs Fairs so far.”

Jobcentre Plus Work Coaches will be available throughout the day to support and help people with CV’s. The National Careers Service will also be available to offer advice, guidance and support with CV completion.

Karen Palin, Employer Engagement Manager at Jobcentre Plus, said: “Previous Jobs Fairs have been a real success because the event provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to meet and talk to employers who have vacancies. The Jobs Fair combined with support in the Jobcentre will help people fulfil ambitions and find their desired job.”

The Jobs Fair is free to attend and you don’t need to book. Supporting the Disability Confident Scheme, the Jobs Fair is operating a ‘quiet time’ session with JobCentre Work Coaches from 9.30am-10am for those with additional needs.

Come prepared to speak with employers face to face about the vacancies they have available, dress to impress, have your questions ready and bring your CV.

Visit all the stands, all employers and recruitment agencies have real jobs on offer, that’s the difference of this event to others.
