Fair showcases job for young

A FREE jobs fair to help match young people with local employment and training opportunities will come to Daventry this month.

On March 19 the Daventry Leisure Centre will host the fair from 12pm until 5pm following on from National Apprenticeship Week and organised by Connexions Northamptonshire.

Businesses with job opportunities or apprenticeships looking to recruit a young person are urged to book a stand and be represented at the event.

It will be an opportunity for employers and training providers to promote their company and vacancies to school and college leavers up to the age of 19.

Cabinet member for children, learning and skills Cllr Andrew Grant said: “Having the right skills available in the county is crucial to our economic growth and our ability to retain and attract employers.

“That’s why events like this are so important in helping to bring together our next pool of potential apprentices with the county’s employers.”
