Investing in new talent

 “These are exciting events for employers to meet 100s of people who are actively seeking opportunities and for people to talk to companies who are looking to invest in new talent,”  said Cheryl Needham Head of Adult and Community Learning of Tresham College,

 “Nearly 40% of people are in low-paid work but could develop their skills and step up the promotion ladder with the right encouragement. We want to help them to meet employers who are looking to help them achieve their full potential.”

Cllr David Brackenbury, North Northamptonshire Council’s Executive Member for Growth and Regeneration, said: “It is great that we are able to team up with partners to provide vital support and assistance to job seekers across North Northamptonshire – underlining our desire to create prosperity throughout our area.

 “Training is so important as people develop their careers and I’m delighted that the event attracted such widespread interest.”

Michelle Wass, DWP Employer Adviser Manager for Northamptonshire said: “Jobcentre Plus is delighted to be working collaboratively with North Northamptonshire Council and Tresham College to bring this innovative event to our customers and the residents of North Northamptonshire, so supporting the local community.”

Tresham College is part of The Bedford College Group, and advertised its own vacancies to visitors as well as talking to employers about training funding which is available for apprenticeships and continuing professional development of staff.
