The Neighbourhood Engagement team, working with Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (TMBC) and Job Centre Plus, helped to plan and took part in the Tameside Autumn Jobs Fair held at Dukinfield Town Hall on Thursday 19 September.
Numerous people attended the Jigsaw Homes stand over the 3 hour duration as over 600 job seeking residents attended this successful event. The team offered support and guidance in completing application forms for the Jigsaw Homes current vacancies; checking CVs and signposting people to our Tameside Work Clubs. They also informed people of the training we can offer, including First Aid at Work and Food Hygiene Level 2.
Over 40 employers and service providers were present, including Active Tameside, Stockport Homes, Bardsley Construction and The British Army. The team also helped with people management on the day and completed evaluations, capturing job seekers’ feedback as they left. This will help with the planning for future job fairs.
