Jobseekers can ‘shop for a job’ from 30 employers at a unique two-day jobs market organised by Loughborough MP Jane Hunt, Loughborough College and Loughborough University.
Employers, including DHL, Adey Steel and Imago, will showcase a range of vacancies from market stalls in Loughborough Market Place on 31st August and 1st September between 9am-4pm. It is free to attend and no appointments are necessary.
In addition, the Loughborough Careers & Enterprise Hub will be open to offer careers advice, signposting to education and training as well as expert advice on starting a business.
Speaking about the event, Jane said: “In place of market traders selling fresh fruit, there will be employers offering jobs! By utilising the market stalls as well as the amazing new Careers and Enterprise Hub, we have been able to put on an exciting event which will help young people with careers advice.
“As well as having local employers in attendance, young people will be able to receive tailored advice from trained advisers in the Careers and Enterprise Hub. We have put on a unique package of events and I’d like to thank Loughborough College for all their hard work in putting on this fantastic event.”
The Jobs Market will be a one-stop-shop for young people who are deciding on their future career paths and is being held to coincide with recent A-Level and GCSE results, providing a great opportunity to talk to the right people and make informed decisions.
Jo Maher, Principal and CEO of Loughborough College, said: “We’re extremely pleased to support the Jobs Market event which is a unique opportunity for employers to meet potential employees in the heart of Loughborough.
“It is a perfect fit with our Careers & Enterprise Hub which is playing a vital role in the community by providing people with advice and support with education and training, getting people on the right pathways to unlock their potential and finding the right jobs.
“The Jobs Market event will strengthen the offer in the town centre and help local employers tap into the town’s talent to fill their vacancies.”
