Enfield residents seize recruitment day opportunities
People from Enfield turned up in great numbers to find out about live vacancies, careers and training opportunities at the Enfield Recruitment Day.
Held at Green Towers Community Centre, Edmonton, the Recruitment Day was hosted in partnership with the skills and employment team at Enfield Council, Local London and Maximus UK.
More than 350 residents came eager to talk to employers about current and future openings and to learn about how to make their CVs stand out at the expert-led workshops.
In addition to job opportunities, many local colleges came to showcase the range of courses on offer to help people further their employment prospects. Wider support was on offer from Enfield Council and The Samaritans to help people facing additional barriers to taking up work.
Employers and colleges were delighted with the response from local residents, remarking on the quality of candidates and the high number of people they would contact or hoping to see apply following the event. Among them were 43 Enfield residents who are on the Local London Work and Health Programme, 18 of whom got a call back from employers after the event.
In a video for Enfield resident's the Council’s cabinet member for Culture, Public Spaces and Local Economy, Cllr Chinelo Anyanwu, said: “Enfield Council and its partners want to bring opportunities directly to you, to support local employment, training and skills development. Jobs mean security and better wellbeing which in turn helps to nurture stronger and happier local communities.” You can watch one of our two videos created at our Recruitment Day by clicking the link below.
Sarah Murray, Director of Local London added: “Helping people into work and achieving a brighter economic outlook is key for all of the boroughs in the Local London partnership. It has been a pleasure working with the team at Enfield; this is something we would love to replicate across our boroughs to help people find out more about exciting opportunities near to them.”
