An exciting new initiative will be showcasing 100s of job opportunities in and around Wellingborough.

Being staged on Wednesday 18 October, the event will bring together the biggest and best employers in the area and help potential employees to understand the training pathways which are open to them towards new or more rewarding careers.

This follows a hugely successful opening event held at Kettering Campus earlier in the year (see photos), staged by North Northamptonshire Council, Jobcentre Plus and Tresham College as one of the largest event of this kind in the area.

Investing in new talent

“This is a really exciting event 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 welcome them to meet employers who are looking to help them achieve their full potential.”
