Council led jobs fair comes to Wellington

12 October 2022 : Council news, Community, Partnership working

Following the recent success of Taunton’s Jobs Fair, Somerset West and Taunton (SWT) Council’s Community Employment Hubs service has partnered with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to host another recruitment event, this time in Wellington.

Wellington Jobs Fair will be held next Wednesday, 19 October, between 10.00am and 12.30pm, with support for the venue being provided by Wellington Baptist Church on South Street, Wellington, TA21 8NS.

Over 14 local and national employers will be exhibiting a range of vacancies across multiple sectors, providing a fantastic opportunity for job seekers to talk to the recruitment teams about the positions, training and apprenticeships available.

A Ukrainian translator will also be available on the day, as well as employment support organisations including SWT’s Community Employment Hubs service, Step Up Somerset, Skill Up Somerset and the National Careers Service.

SWT Portfolio Holder for Community, Councillor Christopher Booth, said: “Last month’s recruitment event in Taunton was a great success with positive feedback received from all parties and we’re committed to holding further job fairs in other areas of the district.

“Although Wellington’s Jobs Fair will be smaller in scale, it will connect local people with local employers, as well as helping new job seekers or long-term unemployed towards work through the various support services that will also be in attendance.”
