With the help of local businesses, Pembrokeshire College’s Employment Bureau recently hosted a jobs fair to help students find out about part-time and seasonal work.
he Employment Bureau is a student recruitment service which is part-funded by the Welsh Government to help young people find work. The team not only advertise job vacancies but also help College students with CV writing, interview skills, finding work experience placements and job searching. The service helps learners to find part time jobs to fit around their studies and helps learners to find full-time work once their courses have finished.
The jobs fair gave College students the opportunity to find out about vacancies with local employers including the Retreats Group, Folly Farm, McDonalds, Human Support Group, Kiln Park, National Trust, Lydstep Beach Village, Police, Heatherton, St Brides Spa Hotel, Army Reserves, Manor Wildlife Park, Park House Court and The Bug Farm as well as accessing expert careers advice from Careers Wales.
Pembrokeshire College’s Employment Bureau Consultant and organiser of the event, Jen Dyer commented: “This is the second event of this type that the Employment Bureau have organised and it’s great to see our relationships with local employers grow from strength to strength!
“By developing this network further, we are able to continue to assist employers by providing the link between them and the wonderful learners here at Pembrokeshire College. Our learners have so much potential and this jobs fair has given them a fantastic opportunity to ask questions, find out information about the various job roles available and hand in their CVs. I look forward to carrying on providing these great opportunities to our learners whilst continuing to help the economy in Pembrokeshire”.
