Your journey to employment starts here – with a free bike

Monday, 16 October, 2017

Residents of all ages are invited to attend a job fair with a difference on Tuesday 24 October.

The free event runs from 10am to 3pm at The Plaza, Civic Centre Way, Havant, PO9 2AX. There is no need to pre-book, simply drop in.

Anyone who is looking for a job or career change can get expert advice on college courses, employers, apprenticeship offers, childcare providers and benefit allowances as well as getting a CV written for free.

Potential employers will also be available on the day to discuss job opportunities. Support services will be available to advise on the difficulties and challenges you may be experiencing in seeking employment.

Working in partnership with Radian Est and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Havant Borough Council will be hosting the event that will also offer free workshops to assist you in reaching your true potential.

To help in transport issues that may be an issue in getting new employment, anyone who completes all challenges on the day may win a bike*.

Councillor Leah Turner, Cabinet lead for Communities and Communities, said: “This event is an excellent opportunity for unemployed and employed residents to come along and get help in their search for new career opportunities. It is open to anyone who feels something is stopping them getting their ideal job. The journey to employment will begin at this job fair with the opportunity of walking (or cycling) away with the chance of a new career.”

Parents can bring their children, as free entertainment and refreshments will be provided.
