More jobs on offer at second coastal recruitment fair

February 13, 2020

This month Job Centre Plus and East Lindsey District Council are hosting their second coastal jobs fair of the year.

The upcoming event takes place at Skegness' Grosvenor House Hotel on February 19 (10:30am-2:30pm) and follows on from the recruitment fair held in Mablethorpe last month which saw hundreds of job seekers and a variety of prospective employers in attendance.

Some of the area's biggest employers will once again be in attendance at the Skegness event, making it an important opportunity for job seekers ahead of 2020 tourism season.

In addition to the full and part time, permanent and temporary jobs on offer, there will be recruitment and training advice, as well as information on apprenticeship and volunteering opportunities.

Attendees can get faster access by completing and bringing along a registration form, which can be found online at: www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/jobsfair

After a successful pilot at the Mablethorpe Jobs Fair, the Skegness event will include a 'quiet hour' between 1:30pm - 2:30pm, which is designed to help those who struggle with noise and crowds, such as individuals with autism. 

Portfolio Holder for Coastal Economy, Councillor Steve Kirk, said: "The recruitment fairs are a fantastic way for local employers to showcase their business and the opportunities they have on offer to prospective employers. I'm sure that our Skegness businesses will find the event invaluable as they look to fill some important positions ahead of the upcoming visitor season."

Peter Hayes, Employer Advisor at Job Centre Plus, added: "With the change of venue this year we have been able to accommodate more employers who will be offering exciting opportunities for those seeking employment."

The Skegness Jobs Fair takes place on February 19th at the Grosvenor House Hotel, North Parade, Skegness from 10:30am - 2:30pm.
