Get Oldham Working – Oldham Council’s team supporting residents to find work and improve their skills – are hosting the next Oldham Jobs Fair next Thursday.
There will be more than 600 job-related opportunities available, with Cllr Shaid Mushtaq committed to making sure Oldham residents have every opportunity to get on.
The event takes place at Oldham’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on Thursday, September 26, from 11am to 3pm.
Cllr Shaid Mushtaq, cabinet member for education and skills, said: “The Get Oldham Working jobs fair continues to grow, and last year we had more than 1,500 people through the doors.
“It’s a great achievement to get so many employers and training providers under one roof offering so many work-related opportunities to our residents.
“Our jobs fair benefits everyone, no matter what your current circumstances are.
“Whether people are job hunting for the first time, looking to return to work, searching for the next step in their career or even work experience to aid their university application, we would urge people to come on the day and speak with the employers.
“They should make sure they bring an up to date CV and plenty of copies, so they can be handed out. They should dress like they would do for a job interview too – it helps to make a good first impression.”
As well as job opportunities from respected employers like Debenhams, O2, HPP (Hills Panel Products), Metrolink, Wilmott Dixon, GMP, McDonalds, Guinness Housing, Miocare, Galliford Try, Manchester Airport, NSL and Housing Units, Get Oldham Working will also be highlighting the range of training opportunities on offer to residents.
There is no need to book – just come along on the day and see what’s available
