“Moving to a new venue, Chesterfield Town Hall, this event will give Chesterfield Residents the opportunity to speak to local employers and find sustainable employment. We’re also proud to be adding a wellbeing side to this event that will help signpost people to organisations and programmes where they can get support to re-enter the workforce.”

The drop-in event is open to everyone, with no need to make an appointment, but job seekers registered with Jobcentre Plus can reserve their place by speaking with their work coach.

As well as job opportunities there will also be several apprenticeship providers who are currently recruiting for new apprentices. An apprenticeship offers a great opportunity to earn while you learn and can help people at any stage in life. Search for apprenticeships in Chesterfield on the Destination Chesterfield website.

Derbyshire Careers Service will also be attending the event to promote training courses but also advise job seekers on how they can get support with their CV and interview techniques.
