10.30am – 11.15am

Introduction to apprenticeships
11.30am – 12.15pm
Come and meet Ealing Council’s apprenticeship team and even some of our apprentices to learn how an apprenticeship can benefit you. Find out what employers are looking for, such as skills, knowledge and enthusiasm. Learn about the growth sectors and industries that you could become an apprentice in and how our apprenticeship team can help you get there.
Confidence for finding and keeping a job
12.30pm – 1.15pm
Starting a new job, especially after a long break, can be daunting. Come along to understand better how to:
- Use your unique skills and strengths
- Learn from your mistakes – and everyone makes them
- Avoid negative language, such as “I’m not good at …….”
- Leave your comfort zone
- Ask relevant questions and request help.
Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for decent living incomes comments:
“As outlined in our Plan for Good Jobs, a key priority for the council is to support residents into good well-paid jobs.
“That’s why we are thrilled to bring you this jobs fair where you can meet and talk to employers in-person about their job vacancies in different sectors.
“Don’t miss out the opportunity to also attend the free seminars – whether you are interested in finding out more about an apprenticeship, employers’ expectations or perhaps need a little more confidence in finding and keeping a job.”
Please sign up in advance to attend the jobs fair. We hope to see you on 16 March.
