Employment hub to host jobs events across Conwy as recruitment crisis deepens

A JOBS and training programme will hold a series of events to support people back into work and education post-pandemic.

Conwy Employment Hub is focused on helping to meet demand in multiple industries for new staff as the UK recruitment crisis deepens.

Weekly drop-in sessions and job clubs are to take place in Llandudno, Kinmel Bay, Colwyn Bay, Penmaenmawr, Llanfairfechan, Conwy, Pensarn, Llanddulas, Abergele and Llanrwst over the coming months.

Conwy’s Employability Practitioner Manager Trish Ellison said: “Across the region and beyond there are many sectors looking to recruit staff in a variety of different roles.

“These free sessions are an opportunity for people to sharpen their CVs and interview techniques, for our team of experts to offer support and advice, and to remove barriers to employment and highlight opportunities in a range of sectors.

“There is help available, whatever your age or circumstance, whether you’re struggling with poor health, childcare costs, transport, or there are other factors preventing you from accessing work – we are here to provide solutions.”

Libby Duo, Strategic Manager for Conwy Employment Service, echoed those words and added: “We have held events for employers this year including the successful job expo in Colwyn Bay during the Spring.

“We’re excited to be back out in the heart of our communities, supporting people to find or progress at work. Everyone is concerned about the cost of living increases and we are here to help bridge the gap to a new start, new career or training.

“We hope people will take advantage of these free sessions and get in touch – we are here for you at what is a very challenging time for so many families and industries. We are also planning to provide support for people worried about their finances over the coming months.”
