Looking for a new job? Log on to the online job fair

Monday, 5 October, 2020

Job hunters will be able to look for their next employment opportunity online with a virtual job fair on Wednesday 7 October.

The event will be organised by Job Centre Plus, Havant Borough Council and East Hampshire District Council and will see local businesses post a range of vacancies to attract those residents who may find themselves looking for a new job following the pandemic, or thinking of a change in career.   

The fair will take place on Twitter between 2-3pm on Wednesday 7 October.

Businesses looking to promote their vacancies are encouraged to take part by emailing vacancies in advance to business@eashants.gov.uk or using the hashtag #EHants&Havantjobs.

Cllr Michael Wilson, Leader of Havant Borough Council, said: “This is a fantastic idea and a great way to get around the limitations that the new coronavirus regulations place on public events.

“The online job fair means you can safely search for your next employment opportunity or, if you are an employer, you can promote your vacant positions to local people.

“The job market is very difficult at the moment so I hope that this new idea will kick start a few careers.”
