Now an annual event, the Mansfield Jobs Fair is a fantastic opportunity to meet with local job-seekers.  In fact, it’s also free to attend and everyone is welcome.  If you are struggling to recruit through conventional methods, then the Jobs Fair may be exactly what you need.  Not only is there a Mansfield Jobs Fair but there is also an Ashfield Jobs Fair on Friday 22 September.  So there’s an opportunity to have two bites at the cherry.

Why should recruiters attend?

Attending the Mansfield Jobs Fair will provide you with the following benefits:

  • Speedy recruitment – engaging in interviews on the day
  • Meeting jobseekers face-to-face
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Collecting CVs
  • Promoting your business and your vacancies locally, directing jobseekers to your company website.

We are hoping for a good turnout on the day from a mixed audience of both employed and unemployed individuals.  This Jobs Fair has been widely promoted through local press, social media, colleges, your local MPs, local job clubs and the Jobcentre.  In addition, flyers have been distributed at health centres, libraries and community centres.

Guidance for applicants

Local people, both employed and unemployed, are invited to find out about:

  • job vacancies
  • new career pathways
  • apprenticeship opportunities
  • self-employment

In addition to local employers, a variety of support organisations will also be in attendance.  These will be on hand to provide advice and guidance to potential applicants to help ensure they make the right choice for their future.  Local people are advised to bring along their CVs and dress to impress in their search for a job.

Further information

This year this important event has been jointly organised between Mansfield District Council, Vision West Nottinghamshire College and the Department for Work & Pensions.  Furthermore, it is supported by MP for Mansfield, Ben Bradley.   The Mansfield Jobs Fair is hosted at Mansfield Library.  A week later, on Friday 22 September, the Ashfield Jobs Fair will take place at the Festival Hall in Kirkby-in-Ashfield.

Running from 10am to 2pm, jobseekers are invited to drop in at a time convenient to them.  So, if you are looking to recruit, this may prove an invaluable opportunity to meet local job-ready individuals and even get some signed up on the day.

Should you wish to have a stand on the day, or both days, then please contact Margaret Harvey on 01623 463426.  If you’re still unsure and need a little more information, Margaret will also be able to help with any queries that you may have.
