THAT first step on the employment ladder or life-changing career move could be just around the corner.
Jobs for Middlesbrough comes to town next month, and promises opportunities galore for job hunters and employers alike.
Top businesses from across the region are already signed up to attend the event at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Wednesday, June 6 – and now it’s time for would-be workers to put the date in their diaries.
A range of leading companies will be showcasing jobs, from Greggs and Sirius Minerals to Marston’s pubs and Cleveland Cable Company.
For the first time Jobs for Middlesbrough will also feature a ‘Digital Showcase’, putting a spotlight on some of the Tees Valley’s up-and-coming digital businesses specialising in gaming, VR and digital technology.
As well as finding out about the vacancies and career opportunities on offer in an exciting and fast-moving sector, attendees will have a chance to try out some cutting-edge technology.
Jobs for Middlesbrough will be opened by Middlesbrough Mayor Dave Budd in the spectacular surroundings of the newly restored and refurbished Middlesbrough Town Hall.
The event is hosted by the Council in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, the National Careers Service, Middlesbrough College and Middlesbrough Community Learning.
Employers will welcome job seekers to stands in the Town Hall’s Crypt, Main Hall and old Fire Station, all fully upgraded as part of a recently completely £7.7 million Heritage Lottery Fund-backed project.
Mayor Budd said: “Bringing employers together with the right people is essential if we are to continue the investment and growth that is already transforming Middlesbrough.
“Jobs for Middlesbrough is a fantastic showcase for the great companies and enterprises we have on our doorstep, and a golden opportunity for local people to be a part of their success stories.”
- Jobs for Middlesbrough takes place at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Wednesday, June 6 from 10am to 3pm.
