Our first virtual jobs fair held for customers in North Wales in July attracted over 400 people.
The free event helped to match job seekers with employers and live vacancies in their area. Attendees also had direct access to expert advisers to help them with their CVs and application forms.
Organised in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and North Wales Regional Skills Partnership (NWRSP), the event was also supported by the Construction Industry Training Board and the North Wales Construction Forum.
Once registered, job seekers were able to access live vacancies and get support whether unemployed, on furlough or at risk of redundancy because of the COVID-19 pandemic. They could also get information on apprenticeships and traineeships within their region.
Following the success of the North Wales event, further events are planned to cover west and south east Wales and these will run in September.
