Helping hand for job seekers

Following the success of previous jobs fairs, North East Derbyshire District Council has once again teamed up with JobCentre Plus to hold a further event in July.

The latest jobs fair takes place on Wednesday 13 July in The Cricket Pavilion, Heath Road, Holmewood (to the rear of Holmewood Miners Welfare Social Club, S42 5RB) from 10am-12noon.

North East Derbyshire District Councillor Jeremy Kenyon, Cabinet Member for Economy, said: “If people are out of work, or just looking for a change of career, this event offers the ideal opportunity to find out what’s out there.”

The fairs, led by NEDDC’s Community Employment Advisor Mark Szadura, are open to everyone, with no need to make an appointment. But job seekers registered with Jobcentre Plus can reserve their place by speaking with their work coach.

There will be lots of opportunities available on the day from a range of sectors including: clerical, hospitality, social care, manufacturing, logistics, transport and many more!

In addition there will be training opportunities and assistance with CV writing, applying for vacancies and careers advice.

Paul Munday, Employer Adviser at DWP Jobcentre Plus Derbyshire, said: “After the success of the last three recruitment events held in partnership with North East Derbyshire District Council, we are very excited to be running a fourth on Wednesday 13th July.

“This event will be a great opportunity to support the DWP’s Way to Work Programme and give the residents of Holmewood, Heath and surrounding areas the opportunity to speak to local employers and find sustainable employment.”

A further event is planned for Thursday 29 September at Dronfield Sports Centre, with more in the pipeline for 2023. Keep a look out on our website and social media for updates.
