Call for firms to take part in next North Lincolnshire jobs expo

North Lincolnshire businesses are being urged to grab the opportunity to sign up to the next North Lincolnshire Jobs Expo.

Employers – including Ongo, Tayto, Cooplands, Rocal, Wren Kitchens and British Steel – who have attended previous Expos report positive results from engaging directly with potential new employees.

A spokesperson from Barton-based Wren Kitchens had this to say after the last Jobs Expo in September: “We found the Expo extremely useful in terms of networking and recruitment. I spoke to around 40 candidates with five of them being booked for interviews the next day.

“I was also approached by several companies and organisations presenting some exciting opportunities that I will be looking into.”

A spokesperson from 24/7 recruitment said: “It was an absolutely fantastic day at North Lincolnshire Jobs Expo. Over 30 new candidates signed up ready to start work over the next couple of weeks at various sites.

“Not only did we build a new candidate pool but we were able to network with local businesses and potential new clients.”

An exit poll of jobseekers at the last Jobs Expo found that of the more than 700 people who attended the event, the majority said it had been worthwhile them attending, with 64 per cent saying they would definitely be applying for vacancies and another 14 per cent said they were considering doing so.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: “The kind of North Lincolnshire we want to build relies on high-quality sustainable jobs and a well-trained, motivated workforce. The Jobs Expo helps us go a long way towards achieving this.

“Supporting businesses to get the people and skills they need will help build back our economy better, improving the outcomes for every family in North Lincolnshire.”

Taking place on Wednesday 8 February at the Baths Hall, Scunthorpe, the Jobs Expo attracts hundreds of jobseekers and upskillers looking to improve their prospects and develop their careers.
