The event, held at Penrhyn Hall in Bangor as part of the Môn Menai Economic Inactivity Project provided an opportunity for people who are currently unemployed to apply for a range of retail, warehouse and managerial and admin jobs at The Range store which will open on Caernarfon Road on the city’s outskirts.
Gwynedd Council is one of the partners supporting the Môn Menai Economic Inactivity Project. Councillor John Wynn Jones, who leads on Economy and Community for the Council was delighted to see the recruitment fair held in Bangor.
He said: “As a Council, we are committed to working closely with our partners to develop new job opportunities within the county. We are determined to raise aspirations and help people to make the most of employment and training opportunities which are available locally.
“The recruitment fair, which was arranged in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, provided a great chance for local people who are currently out of work to find an opportunity to enter the Gwynedd labour market so that they can develop their skills and experience and provide a welcome boost to their confidence.”
