Enfield Council is hosting a ‘recruitment day’ event offering local people opportunities for immediate employment, skills enhancement and information about job openings from employers.

The free event will take place on Wednesday, 20th March at Southbury Leisure Centre and will provide opportunities for jobseekers, new graduates, and those looking to switch careers.

The event is being held in partnership with Job Centre Plus, the Department of Work and Pensions, Maximus UK and Local London, with the aim of meeting the high demand for good-quality, local employment opportunities.

Among the organisations represented at the recruitment event will be industry-leading tech companies with local links, such as Microsoft and Netflix, as well as the Met Police and more than 70 other companies – with a chance to secure on-the-day interviews.

In addition, many training providers and advisors from industries such as construction and healthcare will be present for hands-on advice about qualifications and training. There will also be expert-led CV workshops to tackle barriers to finding employment.

Chinelo Anyanwu, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for culture, public spaces and local economy, said: “Last year, we saw a great deal of enthusiasm from Enfield’s jobseekers, with more than 350 residents attending our autumn recruitment day, with one in ten attendees reporting a job outcome.

“This spring, we aim to maximise the opportunities available by enlisting more employers, hosting more workshops, and providing a larger space to bring direct opportunities to the residents in Enfield. By enabling local people to develop skills to access decent quality work, we can help build an economy that works for everyone.”

Another recruitment event is also being planned for the summer.

The recruitment day event is free to attend, but spots are limited. To book a place:
