Hundreds of employment and training opportunities will be showcased in Scunthorpe tomorrow at the annual North Lincolnshire Jobs Fair.
The event will be held at the British Steel Conference Centre from 1pm to 6pm and a total of 70 businesses and organisations are set to be there.
The jobs fair is being staged by British Steel in partnership with North Lincolnshire Council and Jobcentre Plus and follows on from a successful event held last year, which attracted around 1,000 visitors.
As well as British Steel itself, other organisations to be represented at the fair will include Wren Kitchens, Can-Pack UK Ltd, TSC Foods Ltd, Q Hotels, the Bradbury Group, Cat Tech Euro Ltd, Apollo, Stoneacre Motor Group and the NHS.
The council, North Lindsey College, John Leggott College and the Humber University Technical College will also have representatives attending the event.
As well as giving job-seekers the opportunity to speak to potential employers and register for job alerts, the event will also give people a chance to speak to careers experts for advice.
Employees from British Steel will stage mock job interviews and give tips on creating the perfect CV, while the fair will also include specialist support for HM forces, veterans and their families.

Lucy Lings, British Steel’s senior resourcing advisor, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking for a new job or a change in career.
"To have so many businesses and organisations attending the event is incredible and will ensure there’s an abundance of opportunities.
"Some of the region’s biggest employers, including ourselves, will be there and I’d like to thank them all for supporting this event."
British Steel is currently looking to recruit a further 32 manufacturing trainees and more information about these opportunities will be available on the day.
Council leader Rob Waltham said: "This promises to be the biggest jobs fair of its kind in the Scunthorpe area. The fact 70 businesses and organisations are supporting it shows how committed we all are to supporting North Lincolnshire’s people and economy.
"I’d encourage anyone wanting a new job, a change in career or looking to take up some of the excellent training opportunities in this area to come along."
Entry to the jobs fair is free and can be gained via gate E on Brigg Road, Scunthorpe. Job-seekers can simply attend on the day, with no need to book in advance.
