Join NRG and Newcastle United Foundation on Thursday 1st November at St James’ Park as they explore the career pathways into Contact Centre and Manufacturing sectors.

Turning a typical job fair on its head, this event gives attendees the chance to take a closer look at the career pathways available in two sectors which employ a large proportion of the North East’s working population.

This is a fantastic opportunity to speak to some of the North East’s leading brands and employers including; British Airways, Sage, Tesco Bank, Formica, Elfab and Faltec – with over 20 businesses already confirmed.

Julie Mordue, client relationship manager at NRG explains “Adopting a ‘reverse interviewing’ approach, attendees will find out more about a day in the life of different Contact Centre and/or Manufacturing employees from a cross-section of business functions and levels of seniority, highlighting and changing perceptions of the career opportunities available in these sectors.”

Businesses will also be showcasing some of the equipment and concepts that underpin their roles, with interactive opportunities to try and test the different technologies used in these sectors.

Date/Time: Thursday 1st November (12:30pm – 14:30pm)

Location: Magpie Suite, St James’ Park, Strawberry Place, Newcastle Upon Tyne NE1 4ST
