Careers fair to help people into work
Bristol and South Gloucestershire residents who are battling to find their next job are being offered help at a careers fair being held next week.
Merlin Housing Society is working with a host of local organisations to arrange the fair at The Edge Church, Aztec West, Bristol, on Tuesday May 15 from 12noon – 7pm. The day will include a wide range of opportunities including information on apprenticeships, CV writing, and volunteering. There'll also be the chance for people to chat with employers and recruiters to find out what vacancies they currently have.
Community Investment Manager Jen Griffiths said: "We're committed to improving our communities and the lives of the people who live in them and helping people back into employment is an important part of this. Times are tough and we wanted to give people a chance to learn new skills or find out what options are out there.
"This is a great chance for people of all ages to come and have a look at what is on offer locally. By learning how to improve their interview technique, picking up new skills from a demonstration or by finding out what opportunities are out there, this event could make a real difference to anyone who is looking for work."
