THE successful Hattersley jobs fair is set to return to the Hattersley hub in September.
From 10am to 1pm on Tuesday 6th September, the hub will play host to a range of employers and training providers offering information on the opportunities available to those looking to upskill or get in to work. It is expected that more than 30 exhibition stands will fill the hall, with over 200 jobs on offer to local residents who attend.
The event will provide residents with the chance to meet local businesses face to face. Here they will be able to discuss how best to secure work or training and development opportunities to improve their prospects in the jobs market.
Previous employment fairs in Hattersley have been a hit, regularly attracting hundreds of visitors. The most recent fair in January offered 240 local positions and an additional 1000 jobs at Manchester Airport.
Councillor Ged Cooney, Tameside Council Executive Member for Healthy and Working welcomed the news that the fair was to return to Hattersley. He said, ‘Previous jobs fairs have had incredible success in helping local residents in to work. They connect local people with jobs and opportunities that they may not otherwise have come across or considered. The result is more people in work, a stronger local economy and more money in the pockets of families and households. I’ll continue to support this event and look forward to many more like it.’
