Jobs Fair: Would you like some help filling your existing vacancies?
Streatham Youth Community Trust (SYCT) is to host a jobs fair on the 29th of September.
Streatham Youth Community Trust is a charity dedicated to meeting the needs of local young people through the provision of a wide range of activities in education and training, personal development and support for disadvantaged groups. Young local leaders have suggested that a jobs fair be organised specifically for young people looking for part time, seasonal and entry level jobs. It is estimated that there are currently 492,000 young people aged 16-24 who are unemployed and approximately.
They would like to invite local employers who have real job opportunities and would consider employing someone under the age of 21. The Jobs Fair is an opportunity for local employers to promote their job opportunities to local young people. It is completely FREE to attend to promote your vacancies or simply send us your job details and application forms and the charity will promote them for you.
The jobs fair will target young people under the age of 24 who might be looking for their first steps into the world of work, students looking for seasonal or part time work and young people looking for a change. This event is a multi-sector event and will be sorted into the following sectors:
- Blue: Bars and restaurants
- Yellow: Sports and Leisure
- Green: Manual such as motor mechanics
- Purple: Public Sector and transport
- Orange: Retail
- Red: Office
Each sector will have an SYCT or partner to represent that sector and promote the jobs on offer. It’d be great if employers could attend on the day however as it is a working day for many, SYCT would be happy to promote vacancies and hand out applications forms. Mini workshops will run throughout the afternoon related to applying for and securing a job.
The fair will take place on Saturday 29th September between 2pm – 5pm at Streatham Youth Club, Conyers Road, Streatham.
This is about Streatham pulling together to create a stronger community by supporting local employers to employ local people. If you would like any more information or to notify us of your interest, please email [email protected]
