14th August 2015 – Ellesmere Port Civic Hall will play host to the latest ‘Live Local Work Local’ jobs fair in Ellesmere Port on Thursday 10th September.

Last year’s event played host to 30 employers looking to fill over 450 job vacancies in the manufacturing, care, construction, leisure and retail sectors. The event welcomed over 550 people through the door and they could also get training and skills advice, money advice and information about volunteering opportunities.

Live Local Work Local is a partnership between Plus Dane Housing and Cheshire West and Chester Council.

[Chair of the Ellesmere Port Development Board, Robert Mee, said: “One of the board’s key priorities is to bring in new companies and support existing ones in Ellesmere Port to help create employment opportunities for local residents.”

“Following on from last year’s successful event, where we had over 450 jobs, from major employers from the manufacturing, care, construction, leisure and retail sectors.  The Board are extremely keen to support this year’s event to help both local residents secure employment and local businesses find the quality employees that they require.  I encourage employers to take part in this great opportunity.”

Peter Shaw, Director of Ellesmere Port and Neston for Plus Dane said

[“Our last Live Local Work Local event in Ellesmere Port was a big success, with over 30 employers coming together to advertise their job vacancies and have the chance to talk to potential applicants about the skills and experience they need. Feedback from employers taking part was overwhelmingly positive, and the event is a great opportunity to promote jobs and apprenticeships, and give local residents the chance to find out more about the different career paths they can go down.”

Cabinet portfolio holder for Economic Development and Infrastructure, Councillor Brian Clarke, said “The Live Local Work Local event is a fantastic opportunity for local people to access local opportunities such as jobs and apprenticeships.  There will be the opportunity to apply for live vacancies, apprenticeships, talk directly to employers and obtain information on business start-ups, training and volunteering.  Please drop in and take advantage of this terrific event.”
