PEOPLE looking for a new job or a change in career are being invited to Chorley Council’s annual careers and jobs fair on Thursday 8 September.

Last year the event proved to be a great success with over 300 attending and many walking away with arranged interviews and with some even being interviewed on the day.

The annual event, which takes place in Chorley Town Hall, is hosted by Chorley Council which has managed to organise over 40 exhibitors.

Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, said: “One of our priorities is getting people into work whether they are school leavers or people struggling to find a job.

“Hosting these types of events provides a great opportunity to match people looking for work with employers.

“People have got jobs as a direct result of the previous jobs fairs and many others have gone away with encouragement and advice on where to go next with their career.”

Some of the potential employers attending the event include Argos, ASDA and Royal Mail with support also available from Runshaw college, Job centre plus and the national careers service.

The morning session is reserved for school students to come along and ask questions about career choices and receive advice on CV writing. From then on the event is open for the public to come and seek advice and help to find employment or career advice.

There are also various optional presentations taking place throughout the day on CV writing, the use of social media and self-employment.

You can just drop into the event in the day, which is open to the general public from 12noon until 3.30pm.
