Opportunity for Change – South East Wales Virtual Careers Fair
Although restrictions are beginning to be lifted across Wales, traditional face-to-face job fairs continue to be postponed or cancelled. Now, more than ever, employers and training providers are relying on online support to engage with job seekers and learners to fill vacancies
To help connect these groups, agencies across South East Wales have been working together to deliver another online virtual careers fair, due to take place on Wednesday 24th March. The event aims to help connect individuals living in the Newport, Torfaen, Monmouthshire, Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Merthyr Tydfil, and Bridgend areas to both employment and training opportunities.
The free online event will be hosted by Working Wales, which is delivered by Careers Wales, in partnership with Cardiff Capital Region – Skills Partnership and Job Centre Plus teams across South East Wales. Other parties include The National Training Federation Wales (NTfW), work-based learning providers, local authorities, Colleges and Universities.
Event attendees will have access to a wide variety of job vacancies from various industries across South East Wales, including health, care, construction and the creative sector. There will also be information on apprenticeships and traineeships as well as expert careers advice to support people in their job search.
Following a successful first event we hope the second will provide a useful platform to help individuals within the region connect with employers, training providers and employment support agencies.
