Big name employers sign up for ground-breaking jobs fair in April

Date published: 26 February 2021


Some of the biggest names in business and government in the North West have already signed up for NorthWestWorks4U, a brand-new virtual jobs fair taking place this April thought to be the first of its kind in the UK.

AO.com, Network Rail, the MOD, S & P Global, Engie, Kier, Greggs, North West Ambulance Service, two NHS trusts, Eddie Stobart, TalkTalk, McCann health, the RAF, Booking.com and Sky are just some of the organisations already to pledge jobs for NorthWestWorks4U.

The employer-led virtual jobs expo will run over three days, April 6-8, and will showcase at least 5,000 jobs in all growth sectors.

There will also be support and employability content with practical advice about jobs for an expected audience of 20,000 local job seekers in the North West.

A special pledge event will take place at 11am on March 3, where companies already committed can offer roles for the fair in April, and interested organisations can find out more.

NorthWestWorks4U is a unique partnership between DWP, Jobcentre Plus North West, North West Local Enterprise Partnerships and the region’s major private sector employers.

It is being co-organised and supported by TalkTalk and McCann Health.

The event will be broadcast from the Jobs Live platform which allows for live interaction, content delivery, as well as hosting thousands of job vacancies.

There is no cost to take part either as a jobseeker or a prospective employer.
