I am sure the new employees will do amazing work across a range of sectors.
I want to thank Chris Howard and the team at Hexham Jobcentre Plus for all their support to make this event such a success.’’
A new employee who applied for a Guest Services Assistant Role at the Landal Kielder Waterside said:
“The Tynedale Jobs Fair was a great opportunity for local job seekers, and it was good to see a wide spectrum of employers showcasing their offering and potential openings, including additional support to help people like myself back into the workplace.
I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to apply for a Guest Services Assistant role at the Landal Kielder Waterside and applied that afternoon.
I was so excited to find out that I had been successful and had been accepted for the position. Since starting I feel privileged to work in such a beautiful location and environment with such a friendly, supportive and welcoming team. “
