Cathy Jamieson (MP for Kilmarnock and Loudoun) hosted an Employment Fair organised in partnership with the Department for Work & Pensions, Skills Development Scotland, East Ayrshire Council, East Ayrshire Council of Voluntary Organisations and Ayrshire College on the 20th February 2014.
Hansel was there, along with many other employers, and we were overwhelmed by the number, and quality, of the job seekers who attended. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our stand: those who picked up application forms for our current vacancies - see http://www.hansel.org.uk/news/index.php?newssectionID=3
; those who just stopped for a chat about a career in care (people new to care or returning after an career break might be interested in our peripatetic scheme - there will be more details on the website nearer the next intake in April), and to those who signed up for Mud Run Mayhem.
There was a real buzz about the event and we hope it has proved helpful to those seeking work. It certainly energised us and we look forward to hearing again from those we met.
