Job opportunities to be highlighted at Peterhead recruitment and skills event

Aberdeenshire Council, in partnership with Skills Development Scotland and the Department for Work and Pensions, is to hold a recruitment fair in Peterhead on Tuesday (Tue, Sep 24).

The event will run from 10am-3pm at the Palace Hotel on Prince Street and will feature a range of sectors and employers, including: Gray & Adams, Mears Care, HMP & YOI Grampian, Robertson Construction, Cornerstone, Stagecoach and more. 

Full time and part time positions will be available on the day, along with apprenticeship opportunities, and visitors are encouraged to bring copies of their CVs.

The jobs fair is an ideal occasion for job seekers to find out more about the options available to them and what the businesses are looking for from applicants, giving them a stronger chance of securing a job.

This represents a great opportunity for businesses to recruit staff and for job hunters to get a foot in the door. There will be facilities to complete application forms on the day, and support for those who want it.

Vacancies with organisations who are unable to attend the event will also be advertised and workshops will take place throughout the day on a range of themes:

• An Introduction to Starting your Own Business
• My World of Work
• Individual Training Accounts
• Applying for Vacancies Online – Aberdeenshire Council
