Plenty of advice and opportunities on offer at district jobs fair
Those seeking employment and career development can explore new possibilities and options at Winchester City Council’s next Jobs and Opportunities Fair.
The free fair, run in partnership with Winchester Jobcentre, will take place at Winchester Sport and Leisure Park on Thursday 23 November 2023 and district residents are invited to attend between 10am and 1pm.
A range of employers will be represented including Peter Symonds College, Sparsholt College, Hampshire Police, the University of Winchester, South Central Ambulance Service, Hampshire Cultural Trust and the Nationwide Building Society, alongside organisations offering support such as Community First, the National Careers Service and Winchester Citizens Advice.
Stallholders also look forward to reaching out to those who have settled in the Winchester district. Training opportunities, CV advice and information and support about the rise of the cost of living will also be on offer.
Cabinet Member for Business and Culture Councillor Lucille Thompson said: “This fair is a great chance for local people who are thinking about changing jobs or those who are interested in entering the workplace, to come and meet potential employers and discover the opportunities that are available.
“There are few better places to work than in the Winchester District - it is home to a fantastic array of businesses, and we’re excited to be playing a part in matching them up with our residents.”
Winchester Sport and Leisure Park can be reached on foot or bike via pedestrian and cycle links from the city centre, via National Cycle Network 23 and Domum Road. It is also serviced by the Winchester Park & Ride service; the bus stop for the Leisure Park is located on Barfield Close and is just a couple of minutes' walk from the entrance.
There will be parking on site for disabled visitors, otherwise, attendees are advised to use the Barfield or St Catherine’s Park and Ride car parks.
