To mark National Careers Week, Stockport Jobs Match is organising a week of sector-themed virtual careers events to help signpost individuals to careers advice, training, employers and live vacancies.
Businesses in Stockport are being encouraged to take part in online activities from 1st to 5th March. Businesses are being invited to:
- Send information about live jobs, apprenticeships or volunteer jobs within these sectors to be shared on the day or included in our information packs
- Speak at the Zoom event as an employer for 5-10 minutes to tell attendees about what you have to offer and who you are looking for
- Promote the event to customers or colleagues and sharing on social media during National Careers Week
- Advertise live jobs for free on Stockport Jobs Match’s dedicated Jobs Board
Each day of the virtual careers fair will offer two hours of online activity, following the same schedule. The days will be focused around the Customer Service & Retail, Digital & IT, Warehousing & Logistics, Social Care and Marketing & Creative sectors:
- 9.00-9.30 – Jobs Feed to post links to live vacancies on social media, including sharing employer videos in that sector
- 9.30-10.00 – Training & Careers Advice Feed to share links to training providers, courses, skills programmes, case studies, careers advice and support services to help progress a career in that sector
- 10.00-11.00 – Zoom Event featuring employers with live vacancies, training providers with open courses and CV & Interview tips
The events are aimed to help local jobseekers at all stages of their career journey – from school leaver to adult. Events will offer an insight into the future of work, local employment opportunities and routes into education or training and will support jobseekers in Stockport to make better decisions about their future career prospects.
To take part, please get in touch with the Jobs Match team via email or call 0161 513 0039.
Stockport Jobs Match set up during the start of the coronavirus pandemic to help jobseekers find key worker and frontline jobs during the first national lockdown, and has since expanded its services to offer a wide range of careers advice and support into training.
