CABINET CALL: By South Holland District Councillor Nick Worth

As part of our commitment to helping the South Holland economy develop and thrive, we’re inviting anyone looking for a job or a career change to the South Holland Jobs Fair.

The free annual event takes place between 10am – 2pm on Tuesday, April 26 at the South Holland Centre in Spalding and gives people the chance to speak to over 30 employers and training providers from a range of industries who are currently recruiting in the district.

The Jobs Fair, which is organised by the council’s Economic Development team in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions, has been running for six years now and is widely recognised as a very useful event – last year around 400 people attended.

Representatives from several sectors including the food industry, care and training providers will be on hand to discuss current vacancies as well as offering information about a wide range of jobs.

You can also get career advice and learn about the skills needed for different roles.

Helpful hints will be offered to anyone who is thinking of starting their own business or looking to benefit from training and development opportunities.

So if you’re looking for work or want to learn more about different careers and opportunities, you will find it a very valuable experience.

Meanwhile, a recent networking event giving local businesses the chance to understand about opportunities for working with South Holland District Council has been hailed as a success.

The first-ever ‘Meet the Buyer’ event took place at the South Holland Centre in Spalding back in February and was attended by over 80 people.

The event gave business representatives the opportunity to learn about winning contracts to provide goods and services for the authority, as well as taking part in some valuable networking.

I’d like to thank everyone who attended and organisers from our Economic Team.
