2,000 jobs on offer at City Hall Jobs Fair

Two thousand vacancies will be on offer at the City Hall Jobs Fair on Thursday (20 October).

Employers from across Bristol are expected to attend, including University of Bristol Hospitals Trust, Greggs, The Aztec Hotel, TSB, Blue Arrow and Mainline Recruitment Agency.

There will be a variety of vacancies on offer, ranging from full-time to part-time, permanent, temporary and Christmas jobs.

Many employers will also be offering apprenticeships with immediate starts, while others are planning in advance to take on apprentices in the spring.

Advisors will be on hand to help attendees with job applications, as well as providing advice on training courses and general careers information.

The event has been organised by Bristol City Council, City of Bristol College, the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), and Stroud and South Gloucester College.

Councillor Claire Hiscott, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said:

“As part of our Learning City Ways2Work strategy, we’re working closely with our partners to bring together employers and people who are looking for work.

“These jobs fairs are a great way for people to meet prospective employers, especially for anyone who has been out of work for a while.

“A Christmas job is a perfect opportunity for anyone who wants a permanent job, but who currently lacks that vital experience or a reference for their CV. A few hours spent at the jobs fair could reap large benefits for your job prospects.”

Adrian Carr, Employer Account Manager at the DWP, said:

“Our October Jobs Fair offers job-seekers a real opportunity to get into work especially now in the lead up to Christmas. Our employers will be ready and waiting to talk to people about the jobs they need to fill so if you are looking for work, take this opportunity on Thursday. You could leave with an appointment for an interview and be working the day after.”

The fair takes place at City Hall, College Green, Bristol BS1 5TR on Thursday 20 October, from 10am to 2pm.
