Hopes for jobs boost from fair in town

The Mablethorpe Recruitment Fair takes place on Friday, February 22, at Mablethorpe Community Hall between 10.30pm and 2.30pm.

East Lindsey District Council and Jobcentre Plus have teamed up to organise the event offering 150 jobs in a range of fields.

The Fair held in Mablethorpe in 2012 was attended by around 600 people from across the region.

The council said 30 per cent of those attending successfully gained employment.

As well as job opportunities, there will be recruitment and training advice available, plus apprenticeship opportunities.

South Lincolnshire Voluntary Community Service will also be attending to offer volunteering placements to help people develop new skills.

The district council and Jobcentre Plus say they hope the fair at Mablethorpe and another one at Skegness on March 7 will be hepful for local people looking for careers. A statement said they hoped the event would ‘result in local people being introduced to employers who can offer more sustainable longer term jobs as well as helping employers to fill the vital seasonal jobs that become available each year.’
