There will also be information about working as a fork lift truck driver and becoming a police officer.
  • Chester: Chester Work Zone will be holding a CV Health Check session where residents will be able to get advice and support with their CVs, and support with finding employment. This will be held at Chester Work Zone between 9.30am to 11.30am on 26 June. 
Councillor Richard Beacham, Cabinet member for Housing, Regeneration and Growth at Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “The Council is focused on supporting people in our borough so that they can find employment and succeed in the workplace.
“The employment support events we are running to coincide with National Employability Day will be a fantastic opportunity for residents to learn more about their career options and to meet potential employers. It is also a chance for companies to meet potential employees too.”
 
Last year, National Employability Day saw more than 200 centres taking part in the day nationwide, with activities including jobs fairs and stakeholder visits, conferences, report launches and employability day tea parties. Some organisations welcomed hundreds of visitors and many signed up more jobseekers as a result.
