GREAT Project attends Leicester Job Fair

Job fairs give participants the opportunity to speak face-to-face with various local and national employers from a variety of different industries.

Employment Support Officer, Leah attended the Leicester Job Fair held at the home of the Leicester Tigers this month with two GREAT Project participants last month.

Leah commented:

The job fair was excellent, I attended with two of my participants. There was lots of information on job opportunities and they were able to chat with training providers. One participant was looking for training and employment opportunities and the other was seeking employment. I printed their CV’s out and we handed these round to employers.

By attending the job fair, they gained valuable information about potential job opportunities. Participants had insight into training and one also showed an interest in working towards getting into University.

The GREAT Project regularly attends Job fairs in Leicester City with participants, our upcoming planned events, workshops and activities can be found here.
