Job fair in Kidlington

(Published on 30/05/2018)

Job seekers can take their pick from a range of employers who will be recruiting at the next job fair in Kidlington organised by Cherwell District Council.

The fair, which takes place on Saturday 2 June, is set to attract a large number of recruiters across many industries.

Marks and Spencer in Summertown were the first recruiters to sign up to exhibit at the fair, and it’s expected that a number of other big name organisations will join them.

Cllr Lynn Pratt, Cherwell’s lead member for estates and economy, said: “It can be a challenge for job seekers to know where to start when it comes to looking for a new job. With so many recruitment agencies and online platforms available it can be overwhelming, so having the opportunity to meet with employers face to face is invaluable.

“Our economic growth team are committed to ensuring residents are exposed to a number of different job opportunities from a range of different employers. The events are designed to support both the job seeker and the employer through the recruitment process, and breaks down those barriers which can sometimes prevent people from applying to roles.

“Regardless of someone’s employment status, I’d encourage everyone who has the chance to attend a job fair like this one as it can gives people a platform for networking, and to grow their employment reach without spending hours online or meeting different agents.”

The Kidlington Job Fair will take place on Saturday 2 June Exeter Hall, Kidlington, OX5 1AB from 10:30 until13:00.

All events are free to attend; for more information about any of the events call 01295 221863 or email jobclub@cherwell-dc.gov.uk.
