Communities First Flintshire, Jobcentre Plus and Careers Wales are bringing together local employers, service providers and job seekers at the Civic Hall in Connah’s Quay over two days in April. On Wednesday 26 April, there will be an Information and Skills Day with practical advice on how to find a job including workshops on interview techniques, creating a CV and writing job applications. On Thursday 27 April, there will be a Jobs Fair where businesses with local jobs and work experience placements will be present to discuss current opportunities available. Further and higher education partners will also be on hand to discuss training and courses available in your community. Representatives from the Communities First Enterprise Club will be attending to promote entrepreneurial opportunities in Flintshire and the support available for those wanting to start their own business. Careers Wales will offer tailored support for 16-24 year olds along with the new LIFT programme mentors who provide one to one support for those within a Communities First area who have been out of work for more than six months and come from a workless household. Our Communities First parent adviser will also be available to offer support and advice to parents looking to return to work, giving benefits advice and looking at volunteering as an option.
