More than 300 people attended a recent Council jobs fair, meeting with employers to find out more about opportunities available.

Organised by West Dunbartonshire Council’s Working4U team, 321 jobseekers attended with 25 employers discussing available roles.

The Council also worked in partnership with Bellsmyre digital community, renting their ICT suite within the Concord Centre. This allowed jobseekers to access computer systems so they could complete online job applications there and then.

Convener of Housing and Communities, Councillor Gurpreet Singh Johal, said: “It is great to see so many people turn out for this successful event to find out more about the opportunities which are available.

“I want to thank the Council’s Working4U team for organising the jobs fair and I hope that this leads to a bright future for the jobseekers who attended.”

Vice Convener of Housing and Communities, Councillor Hazel Sorrell, added: “I am sure this will have been a positive experience for both those looking for work and the employers seeking staff.”

The event was funded by No-one Left Behind Scottish Government funding.
