WARRINGTON and Co – the town’s urban regeneration partnership – is getting ready to host the sixth annual Apprenticeships and Jobs Fair.
This year’s event takes place on Thursday March 5 from 6pm-9pm, at The Engine Rooms, Birchwood Park.
Free to attend, the fair attracts hundreds of young people from across Warrington. It provides a face-to-face forum where they can meet with around 40 businesses showcasing their employment and apprenticeship opportunities.
The event is particularly aimed at students and school leavers, aged 16-18 who are looking to enter employment this year. Companies at the event will have entry level job vacancies and apprenticeship programmes available, in a range of sectors and specialisms.
Cllr Russ Bowden, leader of the borough council, said: “Now in its sixth year, our Apprenticeships and Jobs Fair has always been a huge success, attracting some top North West companies, and providing many local young people with new opportunities.
“Make sure you don’t miss out on the chance to come along and hear first-hand from high profile employers about apprenticeships and job opportunities that are available in the area.”
The event is sponsored by Sellafield Ltd, Wood Plc, Paragon Skills, and The Pledge. Companies at the event will represent a range of sectors, including accountancy, business administration, construction, customer services, design, engineering, health and social care, childcare, hospitality and catering, HR, IT and Communications, logistics and marketing.
The 2020 Apprenticeships and Jobs Fair runs from 6pm until 9pm but because of demand pre-booking is essential with three time slots available at 6pm, 7pm and 8 pm.
