Middlesbrough is changing – and the businesses helping to drive that transformation are looking to recruit local people to a range of great jobs.
Positions in a variety of sectors will be showcased at a Job Fair in the town next month and anyone looking for a new career is invited.
The recruitment day will take place at the Town Hall on Thursday, June 11th, with jobs available in the hospitality, customer service, finance, health and social care and manufacturing sectors.
The event reflects the huge transformation which is taking town to a new level on the back of major investments totaling £500 million – and that means there are now hundreds of vacancies for local people to apply for.
Key employers looking to recruit include the new Holiday Inn Express, AXA Insurance, On A Roll Sandwich Manufacturer, SK Chilled Foods, First Source Business Solutions and the NHS.
With applications now being accepted from many of the companies, the Job Fair is a great opportunity to find out more about the roles available and meet the companies’ recruitment teams.
Developments such as the 138-room Holiday Inn Express in Centre Square are set to bring jobs, more visitors and more money into the town.
Mark Winter, General Manager of Holiday Inn Express Middlesbrough, said: “We’re on the hunt for the best individuals Middlesbrough has to offer as we gear up to open an internationally-branded hotel, which we hope will compete with the best venues in the town.
“We’re looking for lots of people to fill a variety of positions, from individuals with little or no experience looking to kick-start their careers, to more experienced professionals with the drive to help us build a hotel that guests and local residents alike will love.”
Middlesbrough Mayor Dave Budd said: “There’s a growing sense of confidence across the town, and that’s reflected in the range of companies and enterprises that have chosen to invest here.
“It’s a real demonstration of their belief in Middlesbrough as a leisure and business destination and is helping to move the local economy on to the next level.
“It’s also a fantastic opportunity for people to get started in a new career, and I hope as many people as possible the Job Fair.”
The Job Fair takes place at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Thursday, June 11 from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
