Chance to recruit workers

FIRMS and organisations looking for staff are being invited to take part in a jobs fair which is being planned for Hartlepool next month.

Hartlepool Borough Council’s Hartlepool Working Solutions team and Jobcentre Plus are aiming to hold the event on Wednesday, September 7, provided there is sufficient interest from prospective employers.

It would take place in the Grand Hotel in Swainson Street from 10am to 4pm.

Tables, chairs and refreshments would all be provided – all a company has to do is to provide a representative for the duration of the event, along with promotional literature, vacancy details and application forms.

Caron Auckland, Hartlepool Working Solutions project officer, said: “This is an excellent free opportunity for companies and organisations to promote themselves and their job vacancies to people from Hartlepool and further afield.

“However, before we can definitely go ahead and organise it we need to know if there is sufficient support for it from would-be employers – we would ask anyone interested in taking part to please contact us straight away.”
