Over 350 local people recently made their way to Bootle Leisure Centre in Merseyseide to attend One Vision Housing’s employability and skills fair, SkillFest.
The keen job seekers came to meet the 50+ employers and training providers exhibiting at the event; showcasing their current job vacancies, and a variety of qualification and apprenticeship opportunities.
The list of exhibitors included Peel Ports, TNT Post and Alternative Futures; promoting their current vacancies across a variety of sectors, including warehousing, logistics, construction and social care.
OVH Employment and Skills Officer, David Milburn, said: “The turnout and feedback was excellent, we couldn’t be happier. Many local people are keen to find work and up-skill, so it’s important for them to see what opportunities available to them.
“After such a successful event, we will certainly be organising SkillFest again next year.”
The Employment and Skills Team at One Vision Housing are dedicated to helping local people into training or employment, and they run seven weekly Job Clubs at different venues throughout Sefton, as well as IT Training courses, all for free.
