Cynon Valley - - YOUR NEWS - TOM HOUGHTON tom.houghton@waleson­

MORE than 300 jobs will be on of­fer from 35 com­pa­nies at the lat­est RCT jobs fair.

The event, which will take place at So­bell Leisure Cen­tre in Aberdare, will see a host of em­ploy­ers from around the UK look­ing to re­cruit the hottest tal­ent.

They will of­fer hun­dreds of ap­pren­tice­ships, grad­u­ate schemes and other va­can­cies, both within the pri­vate and public sec­tor, in­clud­ing Tesco, EE and the Armed Forces. It fol­lows the last job­seek­ers’ event in Pon­typridd, which saw more than 1,200 peo­ple attend.

Coun­cil­lor Mau­reen Web­ber, deputy leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf coun­cil and cab­i­net mem­ber for coun­cil busi­ness, said: “I’m de­lighted to an­nounce that the coun­cil will be hold­ing another of our hugely pop­u­lar jobs fairs in Septem­ber.

“The event pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for those look­ing for em­ploy­ment to get valu­able in­for­ma­tion and guid­ance on tak­ing the next step in their search for their ca­reers, which can of­ten be so im­por­tant in an in­creas­ingly com­pet­i­tive job mar­ket.

“The fair has al­ready at­tracted plenty of in­ter­est from a range of busi­nesses in the South Wales area and we are pleased to al­ready con­firm that both the Cardiff City FC Foun­da­tion and NHS Wales will be present. We re­main committed to pro­vid­ing valu­able em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties to our res­i­dents, and I am pleased to see our lat­est in­take of 33 ap­pren­tices and 12 grad­u­ates start­ing their two year place­ments with us.”

A num­ber of work­shops will be run­ning through­out the day, in­clud­ing top tips for suc­cess­ful job ap­pli­ca­tions and key in­ter­view prepa­ra­tion tech­niques.

It is free to attend, and will run from 10am un­til 7pm on Septem­ber 27.
