More than 100 jobs will be on offer from employers at a recruitment fair in Mablethorpe next month.

The event will be run by East Lindsey District Council, in conjunction with Job Centre Plus.

Some of the area’s biggest employers - including Haven, Park Resorts, East Lindsey District Council, Louth Hotel and the NHS - will be in attendance, making it an important opportunity for job seekers ahead of the 2015 tourism season.

As well as both full and part time, permanent and temporary jobs on offer, there will be recruitment and training advice, as well as information on apprenticeship and volunteering opportunities.

The event will take place at Mablethorpe Community Hall, on Friday February 20, between 10.30am and 2.30pm. Another recruitment fair, offering more than 150 jobs, will take place at the Embassy Theatre in Skegness on Wednesday February 25 between 10.30am and 2.30pm.

ELDC’s Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, Councillor Craig Leyland, said: “In the run up to the main summer tourist season along the East Coast these recruitment fairs are a great opportunity for local employers to showcase the jobs they have available and for local people to see just what is on offer.

“In a district such as East Lindsey, seasonal employment makes up a large proportion of the work force, so winter months can be particularly difficult for many people. We would therefore urge all job seekers to attend one of the recruitment fairs to see what is on offer right on their doorstep.”

June Howard, of Job Centre Plus, added: “There are many unemployed people searching for jobs in the area, but also people who have jobs that are seeking new challenges or a change in direction. These events are not just for the unemployed, they are for anyone who is interested in finding out what opportunities are available.

“ There will also be training and volunteering also available to help people prepare to start applying for jobs as well as help and advice on all aspects of job-hunting.”
