Job Fair a roaring success!

The BBO GCtW Job Fair held at the Nan Tait Centre on Wednesday 11 September 2019 was a roaring success!  Over 50 people attended and met with the 13 employers, training organisations and local partners in attendance and providing information, advice and support. They also used this opportunity to show case their opportunities available to our project participants.

There was areal buzz of excitement and interest on the day as participants took advantage of the friendly atmosphere and spoke to potential employers and support agencies about opportunities. 

Feedback has been very positive from both participants and local organisations/employers and there is a need for a similar event to be offered to BBO GCtW participants in the south lakes area - this is now being planned for early 2020 - along with further events.

"What a great event and I am very pleased it was a success and yes we are very interested in another Jobsfair I event in both Barrow and SL in Feb 2020."

"I found it to be one of the best organised job fairs I've attended during my time at the college.
The layout, attendees and footfall of visitors was excellent, and I personally connected with a lot of people.
Well done and thank you."
