Opportunities for jobseekers to be promoted at online jobs fair

wording: Lichfield District & Jobcentre Plus online Jobs Fair

Jobseekers are to be brought together with local businesses looking to fill vacancies at a virtual jobs fair in November.

The event will take place on Twitter between 8am and 5pm on Thursday 19 November. It will feature live vacancies and content from employers posted on Staffordshire's Jobcentre Plus' Twitter feed using the hashtag #LichfieldDistrictJobsFair.

Lichfield District Council is working in partnership with the Jobcentre Plus team to host the online jobs fair. The aim of the event is to promote live job vacancies from local employers and connect jobseekers with these vacancies.  

Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet Member responsible for Economic Development at Lichfield District Council, said:

“This has been a particularly tough year for jobseekers so we are delighted to be able to work with Jobcentre Plus to make this event happen.

“We would really love to see as many job opportunities as we can posted on Twitter at @JCPInStaffs as part of this event to give local people the opportunity to get a new job.”

Businesses in Lichfield district that have vacancies and would like to take part in the jobs fair should email economic development.  

Businesses that do not use Twitter can still get their vacancies online for the event through Jobcentre Plus. For more information email Thomas Parker at the Department of Work and Pensions.
