Connecting unemployed people with local businesses

Working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, Wakefield Works will help to connect unemployed people with local businesses and is appealing to district wide organisations to get involved in the events that will be held in Wakefield, Castleford, Pontefract and Hemsworth Jobcentres.

Businesses need to register their interest in advance and can support the programme by attending events to speak with local unemployed people; offering career advice, an insight into their sector or to detail specific job opportunities. Interested organisations can join the events for a few hours, at a specific event location or for the full four-day event.

Wakefield Works is an employer-led initiative, helping to provide you with the opportunities to access advice to move forward with your career.

We are running a series of events at your local Jobcentre, where you’ll be able to meet directly with employers from a range of sectors. This will include manufacturing, distribution, recruitment, sales, design, marketing, law and many more.

Wakefield Works will be on tour, from 10am to 3pm at:

  • Wakefield Jobcentre - Tuesday 28th June
  • Castleford Jobcentre - Wednesday 29th June
  • Hemsworth Jobcentre - Thursday 30th June
  • Pontefract Jobcentre - Friday 1st July
