Although both youth unemployment and general unemployment in the Coalville area is falling and is lower than when I was elected to Parliament in May 2010, that’s no consolation to those who are seeking work.
I recognise that it can be difficult to find a job if you don’t know what opportunities are out there, or if you haven’t been in work for some time.
That’s why I am organising a Jobs Fair at Snibston Discovery Park in Coalville on Friday 11th April 2014 to offer people looking for work an opportunity to meet and speak to local employers.
The purpose of this Fair is to put these two groups together in an event that will be full of energy, opportunity and enthusiasm.
It will give local businesses and job seekers the opportunity to showcase themselves to one another in person. there will be work groups to help job seekers with CV writing and tips on winning at interview.
This Jobs Fair will be for anyone, whatever age, school and college leavers, undergraduates, potential apprentices and those already in work who are looking to improve their skills and employment prospects, or to change jobs and enhance their working career.
Real jobs for real people will be advertised on the day, alongside training programs and apprenticeship schemes.
I do hope this event will be useful to you and I look forward to meeting many of you on the day.
MP for North West Leicestershire
