    Local people looking for a job, training or new career will be given the chance to talk to the experts at an event in Minehead on Thursday 22 February at The Beach Hotel.

    The Recruit West Somerset event will see employers and training providers come together to raise awareness of current opportunities in the area.
     
    Past experience shows that sessions like these really help with job-seekers providing a wealth of information – and some securing employment as a result. Similar events held last year attracted hundreds of people looking for work or a career change.
     
    The event will also offer advice and information directly from employers on what they look for when recruiting, advice on how existing skills can transfer into a new career. 
     
    Local training providers will be on hand to answer questions in relation to skills development and training, helping to ensure that people become suitably qualified for current and future job roles. 
     
    Cllr Andrew Hadley, Lead Member for Economic Growth and Regeneration at West Somerset Council, said: “This event provides the perfect opportunity for our community to find out more about local employment and training opportunities available in the area now or in the near future and to speak to employers about what they look for when recruiting.
     
    “We hope, like previous events that we have run over the years, that this event has some great outcomes for the people of West Somerset.”
     
    Anyone who is interested in attending should come along with a copy of their CV as some employers will have current vacancies and apprenticeships on offer. 
     
    The event will take place at The Beach Hotel from 3.30pm-7pm on Thursday 22 February 2018. The organisers include West Somerset Council, Jobcentre Plus, and Hinkley Point C. 
     
    Louise Brown, HPC Jobs Service Lead, said “The HPC Job Service is happy to support the event along with our Site Operations contractors working on the HPC project to promote current roles available on the project within catering, security, facilities management and administration.
