Would your company like to take part in a revolutionary new virtual jobs fair

The event will be bringing people together who wouldn’t normally interact with each other in a recruitment environment. They are challenging traditional approaches to recruitment by valuing attitude, life skills and potential – not just the qualification.

It will be an employer led virtual jobs expo that will be broadcast over 6 – 8 April 2021. It will showcase at least 5,000 vacancies all in growth sectors and advertised to an audience of at least 20,000 local neighbourhood job seekers in the North West. On top of that there will be support and employability content giving easy to understand practical advice, hints and tips for getting a job.

It will broadcast from a channel developed in the North West by a company called Jobs Live, that allows for live interaction, content delivery, as well as hosting thousands of job vacancies – all at the same time.

What’s in it for you? First there’s the satisfaction of being a good neighbour and taking part in something genuinely ground-breaking. But you’ll also be getting access to a huge pool of untapped talent – people with the drive to succeed, with a different perspective, who can add fresh talent and thinking to your business. All at no cost to you!

They expect this unique event to generate a lot of interest and coverage in the region and are aiming to get 101 employers in the North West on board. Hopefully, many more. Come and be a part of it!
