Jobs Fair 2017

Oban Op­por­tu­ni­ties for all-ca­reers and jobs fair

The Oban Times - - Jobs Fair -

Fol­low­ing its suc­cess in the past few years Michael Rus­sell MSP, in con­junc­tion with Bren­dan O’Hara MP and the Ar­gyll and Bute Em­ploy­a­bil­ity Part­ner­ship, will be host­ing a ca­reers and jobs fair in Oban on Tues­day, March 7. Free for job­seek­ers, the event will be held in the Cor­ran Halls from 10.30am un­til 1pm and will play host to a large num­ber of em­ploy­ers from a wide range of fields. This will be an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal em­ploy­ers to pro­mote job op­por­tu­ni­ties to aid re­cruit­ment, and like­wise pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for job­seek­ers to ex­plore lo­cal em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and even hand in their CVs. Com­ment­ing ahead of the event, Michael Rus­sell, MSP for Ar­gyll and Bute, said: ‘I am de­lighted Oban will play host to a jobs fair again this year. ‘I have been in­volved in the or­gan­i­sa­tion of th­ese such events across the con­stituency for many years now and they are al­ways hugely suc­cess­ful and met with much pos­i­tivi- ty from both prospec­tive em­ploy­ers and em­ploy­ees. Ar­gyll and Bute has an in­cred­i­bly rich pool of tal­ented peo­ple but of­ten find­ing the right job can be chal­leng­ing. That’s why events like this are so im­por­tant to help­ing peo­ple find op­por­tu­ni­ties and jobs they may never have be­fore con­sid­ered an op­tion. With so many lo­cal em­ploy­ers tak­ing part in the fair, I am sure it will once again be greatly re­ceived and I am look­ing for­ward to hear­ing of its suc­cess.’ Bren­dan O’Hara MP, who is co-host­ing the event, said: ‘It is great to see the re­turn of the jobs fair to Oban which has been a great ben­e­fit to both job­seek­ers and em­ploy­ers alike. Whether you are look­ing for your first job af­ter leav­ing school or grad­u­at­ing, look­ing to change jobs or even find a to­tally new ca­reer, the jobs fair may be just what you are look­ing for. With a whole range of em­ploy­ers want­ing to speak Oban’s job­seek­ers, it will be a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to speak to them face to face in a re­laxed, friendly at­mos­phere.’ Em­ploy­ers from across the area will be in at­ten­dance, in­clud­ing Blue Tri­an­gle Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, Car­ers Di­rect, Scot­tish Salmon Com­pany, TSl Con­trac­tors, Ar­gyll Col­lege and Busi­ness Gate­way. ‘With so many lo­cal em­ploy­ers tak­ing part in the jobs fair, I am sure they will once again be greatly re­ceived and I am look­ing for­ward to hear­ing of its suc­cess,’ Mr Rus­sell said.
