Gainsborough’s employment & training event to connect job seekers with local businesses

November 09 2021

A free event to highlight employment opportunities, career guidance and training in the district will be held at Gainsborough College later this month.

Taking place on Tuesday 23rd November 2021, the Autumn Jobs and Training Fair is sponsored by the West Lindsey Employment & Skills Partnership and hosted by Gainsborough College and the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP).  

The interactive and informative event will take place between 10am-2pm and offers all local residents access to help and advice from employers, training providers and advice agencies.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to speak to staff from Gainsborough college about qualifications in construction, care and automotive along with the successful Made in Gainsborough engineering apprenticeship scheme.   

Local employers and organisations will be available to promote career opportunities and training in the district - with experts on hand to talk about the skills employers are looking for.  

Speaking on behalf of the DWP, Graham Metcalfe, Partnership Manager said, “For anyone seeking work, thinking of changing jobs, considering an apprenticeship or wanting to start their own business, this is the perfect event to attend as there will be something for everyone.  There will also be plenty of staff on the day to help individuals navigate their way around the fair.” 

West Lindsey District Council is a member of the Skills Partnership that has agreed to sponsor the event.  Amanda Bouttell is the employment and skills lead and is currently lining up employers to attend with job openings and Apprenticeship vacancies.   

She said, “This is a great opportunity for employers to showcase their organisations to prospective employees.  Following a difficult period of uncertainty around employment, some people require a confidence boost to apply for certain job roles so this is one way to drive up recruitment.”  

The event is suitable to anyone interested or considering the following: 

  • Job vacancies 
  • Apprenticeships 
  • Work placements 
  • Traineeships 
  • Career opportunities 
  • Higher level qualifications 
  • Guidance and advice on current training available  
  • Information on volunteering and work experience opportunities 

Sean Knight looks after adult learning at the College and is keen to develop this further at the campus.  He said, “We’d love to hear from members of the community about what they want to learn so we can put on courses and programmes that meet the needs of local people and employers.” 

The event will also feature a number of community based employment & skills initiatives that aim to support diverse groups within the district.  These programmes offer support to smaller cohorts of people with complex and profound barriers to move forward into employment.   

Sean Brennan is the Partnership Manager at ACIS and oversees the Youth Employment Support project funded by the National Lottery.  He said, “The YES programme is a more personalised programme of support that aims to transform the lives of individuals that may feel marginalised from mainstream learning and job opportunities. We look forward to seeing people at the event.”
