Sponsored Article

HUNDREDS of vacancies are set to be promoted on Northamptonshire’s Brackmills Industrial Estate – with a new Jobs Fair planned for March that has been designed to match job seekers with businesses seeking fresh talent.

The one-day event at Delapré Abbey on Friday, March 18, will promote a host of roles – everything from office work and management to driving jobs, packing and facilities.

People are invited to pop along – no need to register – any time from 10am to 4pm. 

Make your way to the main entrance of the historic home – there is plenty of parking if you are driving. The jobs fair will be held in the Bouverie Suite rooms and complementary refreshments will be available.

This event has been organised by Brackmills Business Improvement District, which represents businesses based on the estate. The BID’s chief executive Sara Homer said: “Here on Brackmills there are an increasing number of job opportunities across a wide variety of roles and organisations and we are keen to help get people into work and support businesses needing staff.

Along with all the job vacancies being promoted there will be other support for job seekers, including help with CV writing and presentation skills. To find out more, search for jobs or promote your own vacancies, visit www.brackmillsindustrialestate.co.uk/virtual-jobs-fair

Modern Day Slavery: March 17, 9.30am-1pm

Modern slavery can take many forms including the trafficking of people, forced labour, servitude and slavery. These serious crimes have a direct impact on your businesses. 

While no business sets out to work with unethical partners, modern slavery is often hidden within a supply chain. Find out what warning signs to look out for and how to work with police and partners.
