Job seekers in Ceredigion are being encouraged to join Working Wales’ latest careers and jobs fair.

The free digital event, called Your Career, Your Future, will run from 1pm to 3pm on Tuesday 19 October.

It will include live presentations about the main job growth sectors in their area, jobs in demand, live vacancies, future developments and opportunities to speak with local and national employers.

The event is brought by Working Wales (delivered by Careers Wales), the Department for Work and Pensions, the Regional Skills Partnerships and other organisations and employers.

The session will explore jobs, apprenticeships, education and training, employment support and volunteering.

There will be a focus on certain sectors, including manufacturing, agriculture and food, health and social care, construction and tourism and hospitality and more.

Emily Lloyd-Edwards, operational development manager in Aberystwyth, said: “This will be the third time that we’re running a digital careers and jobs fair, which is a vital service for job seekers in Ceredigion.

"Furlough was still available during our last series of events and now that the Job Retention Scheme has ended, even more people could be at risk of redundancy and we know job security remains a high priority for the people of Ceredigion.

“Not only is this event an opportunity to see what options are out there at the moment, but also understand the potential opportunities on the horizon and be informed of alternatives that may otherwise have not been considered.

Careers Wales centres are now back open for pre-booked face-to-face appointments and some centres are also offering drop-in sessions where appointments are not necessary.

All centres operate safely and in compliance with COVID regulations, including social distancing, requirement of facemasks and regular sanitising stations.
