Feedback From Enfield Jobs Fair 2015

Over 800 jobseekers and 40 employers came along to the Enfield Jobs Fair 2015, resulting in many new jobs and fantastic job opportunities for those that came along. The event was covered in the local press and many people were able to speak to Nick throughout the day. 

Nick said, "During the Jobs Fair last Thursday I met many of you who managed to make it to the event. It was good to get your feedback and review some of the challenges you and others face in your search for work. I was pleased that so many of you took time to meet with our advisors in the Enfield Over 50s Jobs Forum Lounge. They were busy from the minute we opened. 

I have received feedback on what was useful and what you would like to see more of at future Jobs Fairs and on the Enfield Over 50s Jobs Forum web site - hopefully we can make these changes and put on an even better Jobs Fair in the future if I am re-elected."

Connections At The Jobs Fair

Employers and potential employees made connections at the Enfield Jobs Fair, opening up new job opportunities and sources of employment advice. 

Businesses and bosses were on hand, not just to offer work, but to answer questions from jobseekers about future opportunities and possible ways of increasing their own personal development, including networking skills and interview tips. One business, Local PC Shop, spoke to army recruiters about the advantages and leads for employing ex servicemen & women.

The Employer Engagement Team from Barnet and Southgate College also spoke to jobseekers of all ages about developing their educational qualifications and employability. 

Nick said, "The Jobs Fair is mainly about job opportunities, but also about opportunities to develop skills too. That's why I organised the Over 50s Jobs Forum area which gave employment advice and one-on-one tips to people older people. Over 50s unemployment is still a real issue. Although it is falling there is still more to be done but this is certainly helping them on the right track."

This was part of Nick's work on his Enfield Over 50s Jobs Forum, and you can find the website here.

Enfield Jobs Fair 2015 date announced

Nick de Bois MP will be organising his fourth Enfield Jobs Fair on Thurs 26 February at Southbury Leisure centre.

Working with Enfield JobCentre Plus, Nick will be aiming to repeat the success of previous Jobs Fairs which have seen dozens of companies offering hundreds of jobs. Last year's Jobs Fair was attended by almost 1,000 people.

Nick said, "Since being elected as an MP in 2010 I've tried to find lots of ways of offering people practical help. By using my office as an MP to bring together companies looking for new staff with people looking for work, I hope I'm achieving that".

He added, "The previous three Enfield Jobs Fairs have been successul and I want the same again for this year - ensuring there are real vacancies on offer for people to come and find out about and apply for".

Keep up to date by following @JobsFair2015 on Twitter.

The Enfield Jobs Fair took place again this year on March 7th.

Once again Nick organised for companies looking to recruit staff to set out their stalls at Southbury Leisure centre so that people looking for work can find out about current and future vacancies.

With no need to register and  just drop in on the day, over 900 people attended this year.

Nick was the first MP to hold a Jobs Fair and the idea has been reproduced up and down the country. This is the third Jobs Fair Nick has organised since becoming an MP.

Thank you for the opportunity to attend as an exhibitor at the Job's Fair on Friday. We had an over-whelming response from people interested in starting their own Avon Business and are busy following up initial enquiries. We found the event to be well organised and from what I observed there was a great deal of information available, from joining the armed forces to returning to higher education, and lots more besides. Looking forward to the 2013 event! Carey Annesley Independant Avon Sales Leader Enfield

Following the Enfield Jobs Fair, held in January 2011 which was visited by 1,200 people and hosted representatives from over 40 companies, Nick set up the Enfield Jobs Club to provide on-going support and guidance for those participating in the job hunting process.

The Jobs Club took the form of a Monday morning session every week, using workshops and seminars on subjects such as interview technique, compiling a CV and basic finance.

With the successful launch of Enterprise Enfield's Work Club, which performs the same function as Nick's Jobs Club but with far greater resources and expertise, the Jobs Club has now come to an end. If you are looking for work and feel you could do with some help in navigating the job hunting process, the details of Enterprise Enfield are below.

The Work Club meets most Fridays at Enterprise Enfield, Enfield Business Centre, 201 Hertford Road, Enfield, Middlesex EN3 5JH. To find out more, including information on the dates and sessions, go to their website here.
