Craigavon Civic Centre was a hive of activity as hundreds of prospective job seekers attended the recent ABC Job Fair.
Organised by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council in partnership with the Department for Communities, the ABC Job Fair saw over 50 employers and support organisations pitch up their stall to promote over 700 local jobs.
Vacancies were available in large and small employers from a range of sectors, including, hospitality, manufacturing, IT, health and social care and much more. In addition to job vacancies, job seekers also received information on training opportunities, cv advice and guidance, support with completing application forms and assistance with interviews as well as one-to-one discussions with careers advisers.
Attending the event, Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, Councillor Mealla Campbell commented,
“We are delighted to once again partner with the Department for Communities and key employers to deliver the ABC Job Fair. With over 50 employers and support organisations in attendance and over 700 jobs up for grabs, the job fair was a fantastic opportunity for our citizens to find work and improve their skills as well as helping boost the economic prosperity of our borough.”
