Every year, I host the Tynedale Jobs Fair. The Tynedale Jobs Fair brings together many of Northumberland’s biggest employers with local residents who are searching for their next job. The jobs fair is a great opportunity for those who are currently out of work or for someone looking for a change of career.
The 2021 Jobs Fair was our biggest yet, with over 75 employers in attendance, Attendees included Prudhoe-based manufacturer Essity, Northern Rail, British Volt, Aldi, McDonalds and many more.
The Jobs Fair is organised in collaboration with the Hexham Jobcentre Plus, ensuring job coaches are there to assist those on Universal Credit.
The 2021 Jobs Fair also featured a dedicated CV writing area, run by recruitment company Reed in Partnership. Creating the perfect CV is one of the key stages of getting a job, and Reed in Partnership was on hand to give local job-seekers tips and advice on how to put together an eye-catching and impressive CV to show off their unique skills and experience.
A recent Jobs Fair attendee:
''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.“
