Businesses seeking to employ young workers are invited to promote their vacancies for free at Aberdeen’s upcoming Moving On youth recruitment event.
Hundreds of young people considering their next steps after leaving school will attend the recruitment event to find out about training, apprenticeship and employment opportunities available in the city.
The annual Moving On event is hosted by Aberdeen City Council, in partnership with Skills Development Scotland and DWP. Since its inception it has supported businesses across a wide range of sectors to recruit new employees by bringing them together with a pool of young job seekers.
Moving On also promotes training opportunities for young people and exhibition space is available for training providers, as well as for employers.
Cllr John Wheeler, Convener of the Aberdeen City Council Education Operational Delivery Committee, said: “Creating opportunities for young people is integral to our long-term vision for the city and this promises to be an excellent opportunity for prospective employers to link with potential employees.
“The Council is delighted to be hosting Moving On and we look forward to working with companies and organisations from throughout the region to showcase the many training, apprenticeship and employment options that there are.
“Every industry is in the midst of change – but a skilled, committed and energetic workforce will always be at the heart of Aberdeen’s success.”
The Moving On event will be held in the Town House, on Monday, 25 March. The annual event is delivered as part of Aberdeen Guarantees, a partnership initiative led by Aberdeen City Council aimed at improving opportunities for 14-25-year-olds.
The closing date for organisations to apply for a free exhibition space is Monday, 4 March.
