Heading for Villa Park

By on 19/07/2009 in News

The LDV Taskforce will hold a two-day jobs and advice event at Villa Park later this week, in an effort to get West Midlands residents back into work.

The FUTURES 'jobs for Birmingham and the West Midlands' event at Villa Park on July 24 and 25 will see employers from across the region advertise  jobs, giving those who attend the chance to apply there and then.

The Taskforce is a multi-agency body involving Birmingham City Council, Jobcentre Plus, Advantage West Midlands, The Learning and Skills Council, Accelerate and Solihull Council, set up to support local citizens affected by the economic downturn.

In addition to promoting available jobs, the event will also offer visitors free careers, benefits, debt management and training advice.

Cllr Neville Summerfield, Chairman of the LDV Taskforce, said: “Not only will this event bring a wide range of support and advice services together in one place, but crucially it will see exhibitors attending who genuinely have jobs available here and now, to which they want to recruit from those who attend.

“This means there is a very real possibility for some of those attending that by the following day they may find themselves in employment as a direct result. I'd therefore implore anyone in the West Midlands who is seeking work, or wants advice on how to manage their personal affairs during these testing times to get over to Villa Park to see all that will be on offer.”

The FUTURES event is being staged at the Trinity Suite at Villa Park, and will be open from 10am to 4pm, on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th July. Free crèche facilities and parking will be available on site.

Employers across the West Midlands with jobs available who wish to get involved in the event are invited to contact Birmingham City Council for more details by e-mailing hazel.evans@birmingham.gov.uk
