Jobs galore – Grand Hall recruitment fair a roaring success

“A great event, well organised and lots of different opportunities on offer”  -  the comment of one of nearly 700 people who flocked to East Ayrshire Council’s Recruitment Fair where over 50 employers, advice and training agencies were on hand to give advice and offer jobs and apprenticeships to job seekers of all ages.

With opportunities in careers as varied as graphic design, care work, hospitality, driving, estate agency, nursing, retail and engineering, there were choices to suit everyone.

Councillor Jim Roberts, Cabinet Member for Economy and Infrastructure, East Ayrshire Council said: “It was truly uplifting to feel the buzz in the Grand Hall -  the enthusiasm of both stall holders and potential recruits was evident. We’re lucky in East Ayrshire to have  such a pool of available talent and employers who are willing to go the extra  mile to encourage, recruit and train people to help boost their organisations and therefore the local economy.

“Matching the right people with the right training or job is what our Employability Service excels at. Our job coaches work with employers and candidates, supporting them through the selection, recruitment and training process. There’s funding available and lots of help to get people ready for the right career for them. This event was one of many that we run, and it was a big success, but our team are available all year round and happy to talk to job seekers and employers alike.”
