Your District Council has teamed up with Dales Housing to stage another jobs fair this month.
Local employers will be recruiting to a variety of positions at Ashbourne Jobs Fair on Tuesday 18 October from 11am to 2pm at our Ashbourne Leisure Centre on Clifton Road.
Gulliver’s World Theme Park, Homebase, Poundland, Derbyshire County Council, Burleys, Ashbourne Lodge Care Home, Trouw Nutrition and Mountain Warehouse have already confirmed that they will be attending.
Local training providers, Jobcentre Plus, Rural Action Derbyshire, Wheels to Work and Derbyshire Community Bank will also be at the fair, providing information on apprenticeship, training and volunteering opportunities, searching and applying for jobs, transport and personal finance.
Jobseekers who attend this free event will get the chance to talk direct to employers, to find out more about the jobs on offer. They may even get the chance to apply for some vacancies on the day, so anyone attending is advised to bring along their CV.
Chris Foster, Waterloo Housing Group’s Interim Director of Housing and Neighbourhoods, said:
“Matlock Jobs Fair was a huge success. Over 100 jobseekers and 18 employers attended the event in May, and 21 people managed to secure a new job. We’re hoping to attract even more companies to the Ashbourne event, so that we can help facilitate opportunities for people to progress towards work and better employment prospects.”
Councillor Lewis Rose OBE, Leader of Derbyshire Dales District Council, said:
“Business growth and job creation remain the District Council’s top priorities and I am delighted that this jobs fair follows on from a very successful similar event in Matlock earlier in the year. Once again, it will provide an opportunity for local people to meet prospective employers and see what vacancies are currently available.”
