Recruitment and skills event offering job seekers and businesses opportunities in Peterhead next month

A recruitment and skills fair is taking place in Peterhead at the start of next month with a range of part and full time employment, as well as apprenticeship opportunities, available on the day.

Aberdeenshire Council is holding the event in partnership with Aberdeen Foyer, Skills Development Scotland and the Department for Work and Pensions.

A range of sectors will be taking part including: engineering, hospitality, transport, care, construction, and local government. 

Exhibitors include Score Europe, Stagecoach, Scottish Prison Service, Police Scotland, Gray and Adams, Robertson Construction and Aberdeenshire Council. 

Stands are also still available for any businesses looking to recruit in the area.

The event is a great opportunity for job seekers to find out more about options available to them, and what businesses are looking for from applicants, giving them a stronger chance of securing a job.

It is a chance not only for businesses to recruit staff, but also for job hunters to get a foot in the door.

There will be facilities to complete application forms on the day, with support available to those who want it.

Vacancies with organisations unable to attend the event will be advertised on the day and visitors are encouraged to bring copies of their CVs.
