The Get Hired Sheffield Careers Fair, brought to you by the Sheffield Star and Jobstoday, will help top employers find talented local staff on Thursday 12 September at The Hub, 6 Paternoster Row, Sheffield.

Businesses are able to book an exhibition stand to establish their company as a great local employer while meeting proactive job hunters face-to-face to fill their vacancies quickly and cost-effectively.

Seminar slots are also available for companies who want to provide advice and techniques to help job-seekers into employment, or to take their next step on the career ladder. Companies already attending include Ati Allvac, Ronseal, Know How and Carewatch to name but a few.

The event will take place on Thursday 12 September from 11am to 3pm.

The Sheffield Star and Jobstoday are part of Johnston Press PLC, one of the UK’s leading publishers of over 200 local newspapers and Internet sites. Over 41,000 local job-seekers use to search for jobs every month.

An extensive marketing campaign will see promotions of the fair appearing in all Johnston Press titles in the area, in newspapers and online, reaching over 558,000 people. Along with targeted communications and above-the-line activities in the city, this will ensure a large number of proactive and motivated candidates attend.

Joanne Harwood, Group Category Manager at Johnston Press, said: “A job fair is a great opportunity for businesses to fill their vacancies with the candidates they are looking for.

“By meeting face-to-face with local job hunters in a relaxed and informal setting, they are able to get a much better understanding of the individual’s skills and experience.

“We’ve already had a lot of interest from local businesses wanting to attend and we hope that more will take advantage of this opportunity. There are so many talented individuals here in the Sheffield area and it’s a fantastic chance for top employers to showcase their companies.”

Stands are limited, and the deadline for booking is Thursday, August 29. Businesses are encouraged to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Please telephone 0114 289 4537 or email now.
