Jobs fair comes to Royal Burgh

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

Ruther­glen MP Mar­garet Fer­rier has teamed up with Ruther­glen Job­cen­tre Plus to host a jobs fair in Ruther­glen this Fri­day, June 3.

Fea­tur­ing some large em­ploy­ers such as Tesco and Costa Cof­fee, the fair will also fea­ture KFC, who are keen to re­cruit for their new restau­rant due to open shortly in Ruther­glen.

Aimed pri­mar­ily at those look­ing for em­ploy­ment, the fair is also open to those con­sid­er­ing a change of job or ca­reer, or who would like to de­velop new skills and gain new qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

Ruther­glen Jobs Fair is free to at­tend and avail­able to ev­ery­one. At­ten­dees are in­vited to drop in be­tween 10am and 2.30pm at Ruther­glen Town Hall.

Ms Fer­rier said: “I’m de­lighted to work along with Ruther­glen Job­cen­tre Plus to bring this jobs fair to Ruther­glen. Although the area en­joys low lev­els of un­em­ploy­ment, this is ex­actly the kind of ini­tia­tive needed to con­nect em­ploy­ers with po­ten­tial work­ers.

“It’s great to see so many or­gan­i­sa­tions sup­port­ing the event and lend­ing their skills and ex­per­tise. If suc­cess­ful, I hope that this fair can be­come a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence, and

repli­cated right through­out my con­stituency.”
