Southampton City Council’s Employment Support Team is delivering Southampton’s Employment and Advice Day next Tuesday, 31 May, starting with workshops for the SO14 community from 10:00am and concluding with a jobs fair open to all taking place at Central Hall, St Mary Street from 3:00pm until 7:00pm.
The Southampton Jobs Fair is a fantastic opportunity for job seekers to meet with over 25 employers, engage in pre-interviews and discuss live vacancies across a wide variety of sectors.
Featuring representatives from Southampton Football Club, Hampshire Constabulary, Drew Smith, Pure Gym and the council, among many others, the Jobs Fair will have something for everyone, whether looking for work, or searching for a more rewarding career.
The Employment Support Team will be there to offer support to people to find the job they want, for this event and beyond. Through upskilling peoples’ CV’s, developing their interview skills and generally increasing their confidence, the Employment Support Team work in a person-centred way to help improve peoples’ employability.
We support a broad range of residents with specialised services for council tenants (T.E.E.M), parents (PATH), young people (Young Persons Employment Hub) and neurodivergent individuals (Solent Get Into Employment) through one-to-one support and a wide range of work clubs.
For employers, the Jobs Fair is a valuable opportunity to promote their business and save time and costs by meeting potential employees face-to-face. If you would like to register your interest in exhibiting at the next Jobs Fair, please email [email protected]
Councillor Toqeer Kataria, Cabinet Member for Communities at Southampton City Council, said:
“After two years of virtual events, the council’s Employment Support Team is excited to be running our upcoming Jobs Fair in-person again. UK businesses are currently struggling to fill vacancies and Southampton is no exception, so we hope that job seekers will drop-in and seize this opportunity with both hands.
“I encourage everyone across the city to take advantage of this great opportunity and promote within your communities so we can help as many people as possible.”
