St Helens Chamber has announced 12 dates for Jobs and Apprenticeship Fairs in 2024 which are now available for local employers to book, free of charge.

Lisa Weir, Director of Training at St Helens Chamber, explained: “Through our close work with local businesses, we recognise that recruitment is a big challenge for businesses across the region. We’re also the National Careers Service for St Helens, and so we’re working with plenty of local people who are looking for work.

“This makes us uniquely placed to help bridge the gap between businesses looking to recruit and people looking for work – and that’s what the Jobs & Apprenticeship Fairs are all about.”

St Helens Chamber works in collaboration with DWP on these monthly events, which are taking place all across the Liverpool City Region in a range of locations to help businesses everywhere to recruit.

Lisa added: “We don’t charge exhibitors at these events, as we want to keep the focus on recruitment support and ensure that no one is priced out.

“The events run for two and a half hours, and attract an average of 150 attendees. So, for a minimum time commitment, and no financial commitment, you could meet lots of potential candidates. Previous events have seen multiple jobs offered on the day, and many more interviews scheduled, so these really are valuable to local businesses.”

Events are now open for booking, but places are filling fast, so interested businesses are encouraged to register early to avoid disappointment. Not only can businesses meet potential candidates, they can also find out more about the recruitment support provided by the Chamber, most of which is free of charge.

Lisa added: “The Chamber have a range of recruitment support solutions available, from Sector Based Work Academies through to work experience placements and support to hire Apprentices. We’re happy to talk through your requirements, and our expert team can recommend the right solution for you.”
