A jobs fair to be held at Ealing Town Hall on Thursday, 24 May will help local people find work and provide advice on boosting career prospects.
The fair, hosted by housing group A2Dominion, will offer jobs, apprenticeships and training programmes and is being run in collaboration with Ealing Council, Catalyst Housing, Shepherds Bush Housing, Cape Project, Job centre Plus and employers from across the borough.
There will be opportunities on offer for roles in customer service, hospitality, security/stewarding, healthcare, retail, construction and many more industries. The fair is free to attend and does not require pre-registration.
Over the past 12 months, A2Dominion has led on seven similar job fairs across west London in collaboration with other housing associations, which has resulted in more than 150 people in getting jobs, 80 going into apprenticeships and another 100 referred for employability support.
Dawn Wightman, director of housing services at A2Dominion, said: “The Ealing jobs fair will bring together dozens of partners and employers offering hundreds of jobs and support for residents across the borough. With the arrival of Universal Credit and the impact on people across Ealing, we want to ensure that our tenants and residents can access quality jobs that give them greater independence, control over their lives and help to support their families.”
Tony Clements, executive director of regeneration and housing, said: “Supporting our residents into employment, training and apprenticeships is an important priority for the Council. The Ealing Job Fair is a great way for residents to meet with employers and find real opportunities to get work or start training that will improve their prospects. There are hundreds of jobs on offer in many sectors and professions to suit a wide range of interests and skills.”
The fair will be held between 10am-3pm on Thursday, 24 May at Ealing Town Hall’s Victoria Hall. Further information can be found here.
