An exciting new initiative will be showcasing hundreds of job opportunities in and around Kettering.

Being staged on June 13, the event will bring together the biggest and best employers in the area and help potential employees to understand the training pathways which are open to them towards new or more rewarding careers.

North Northamptonshire Council, Jobcentre Plus and Tresham College are putting together the largest event of this kind to have been staged for years. More will follow in coming months at the Tresham College Corby and Wellingborough campuses.

This is a really exciting event for employers to meet 100s of people who are actively seeking opportunities and for people to talk to companies who are looking to invest in new talent.

Nearly 40% of people are in low-paid work but could develop their skills and step up the promotion ladder with the right encouragement. We want to welcome them to meet employers who are looking to help them achieve their full potential.

In addition to this, as the local authority for the key growth area of North Northamptonshire, we provide a wide range of support for our fantastic business community, and are pleased to welcome and work with new businesses of all shapes and sizes, and those that are already well-established in the area.

The event will be open to the public from 4pm to 6pm at the Tresham College Kettering campus where potential employees can come and find out more about employment opportunities from the organisations attending, and training opportunities available to help them into employment including apprenticeships, part-time courses and T Levels.
