Connecting unemployed people with local businesses

Wakefield Works will be on tour in 2018 at:

Castleford Jobcentre - Tuesday 11th September
Hemsworth Jobcentre - Wednesday 19th September
Pontefract Jobcentre - Wednesday 26th September
Wakefield Jobcentre - Wednesday 3rd October

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 local unemployed people with the opportunities to access advice to move forward with their career.

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