The jobs fair, ‘Brighton Your Futures’ is back at the Brighton Dome on 3rd April 2014 with aims to help unemployed people, aged 14-25, access new careers and training.
The jobs fair will offer an array of workshops, where young job seekers will be placed directly in front of employers so that they can tap into young talent and fill their vacancies with willing and eager candidates.
Sue Shanks Chair of the Children & Young people committee says “This is another way we are helping to give young people a chance of employment opportunities. It will put young people in touch with employers, training providers and educational establishments, allowing them to identify relevant employment entry opportunities.”
Talks will also be given which will cover such objects as support and guidance on being an apprentice, working in different job sectors from young people themselves and inspirational speakers.
The whole event is being managed by 3D Change, a social enterprise which encourages regeneration by tackling unemployment through local initiatives.
Moira Skinner, Managing Director of 3D Change explains, “BYF 2013 saw a footfall in excess of 1000 young visitors and in excess of 80 organisations exhibiting. We are aiming to get even more exhibitors and opportunities for BYF 2014 which will in turn increase the interaction and excitement amongst young people.’
Brighton Your Futures is a unique initiative with an approach to private, public and social enterprise all working in partnership to support Brighton & Hove’s young people.
