Jobseekers in Peterborough have a fantastic opportunity to apply for a wide range of jobs in the care sector thanks to a forthcoming jobs fair.
The Department for Work and Pensions and Tackling Worklessness in Peterborough (TWIP) are hosting a brand new event showcasing the huge variety of jobs available in care on Tuesday 27 March 2018 from 10.00am to 1.00pm at the Peterborough Town Hall.
With over 20 stands, the event will include hundreds of vacancies from the retail, administration, care, customer service and warehousing sectors. Companies attending include Cross Keys Care, Sahara Community Care Services, Care Solutions, Your Care and Support and Age UK.
The event is being sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions and Cross Keys Homes, and is hoping to help many find work or training opportunities for those looking for a rewarding career in the sector.
Job hunters will be able to meet local employers on the day, find out what support and training opportunities are available in the city as well as browse real time jobs quickly and conveniently. Attendees are therefore strongly encouraged to bring their CVs and dress smartly. Work Coaches from Jobcentreplus will also be available throughout the event to provide support.
