Previous events have attracted over 1,000 visitors on the day and it is expected the Jobs Fair on 6th March will be even more popular, offering representatives from a wide range of organisations and businesses who want to share their job and training opportunities.
The event will also include workshops on key issues such as job interviews and application form completion tips, developing a career in social care and information sessions on apprenticeships including; qualification frameworks, entry criteria, sectors and job roles.
At the Jobs Fair there will be a chance to meet the award-winning Employment, Education and Training Team that coordinates the Apprenticeship and Graduate programme for RCT Council and find about when recruitment begins in 2019.
Cllr Maureen Webber, Deputy Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, said:
'Our approach to employment, education and training has secured national acclaim, which even led to the Council winning the Macro-Employer of the Year Award at the Apprenticeship Awards Cymru 2018. The Careers Fair will showcase the opportunities on offer for our residents, regardless of age, career interest or experience.
'It also allows us to engage with visitors on the services we currently deliver and what more they would like to see.
'We prepare young people in the classroom for work, with top class work experience and vocational learning. Our Graduate scheme and award-winning Apprenticeships help people every year and we also have bespoke employment and training to help care-leavers prepare for independent living.
'When you combine such a far-reaching approach from the Council, RCT's largest employer, with the opportunities presented by our partner agencies and private sector businesses, this is an event not to be missed.'
