News release


Employment Fair

1 July 2014

Whether hoping to find a fresh start, a better job, or a new career direction, job seekers will find a wealth of exciting opportunities at a free job fair in Workington.

Allerdale Borough Council has teamed up with Workington Rotary Club, Workington Town Council, Washington Square Shopping Centre and the Department of Work and Pensions to bring an employment and careers fair to the town.

A variety of employers from both the public and private sectors will be advertising 100 plus vacancies in a wide range of fields.  The event will take place on 7th, 8th & 9th July in the former HMV store in Workington between 9.30am and 4.00pm. The event will be opened by the Mayor of Allerdale, Councillor Len Davies and the Mayor of Workington, Councillor Mary Bainbridge.  People can get career advice, learn about development opportunities as well as know about the vacancies that currently exist and need filling immediately, and those that are planned for the coming months.

There is no need to register for the event - people can just turn up on the day.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Allerdale Borough Council’s Executive Member for Economic Growth said: “In the Council Plan, one of our priorities is to provide a strong, sustainable and vibrant local economy.  The Council is very supportive of this event which will give local people a chance to engage with potential employers and get the advice they need.”

Walter Harrison, West Cumbria Employer and Partnerships Manager at the Department of Work and Pensions said: “We are very pleased to have been given the opportunity to be part of this event and it is brilliant to see so many organisations on board. It is a great opportunity for people to come along, talk to employers and improve their employment prospects.”
