Enfield Summer Recruitment Day to see record numbers

Police officer discussing job prospect

The Enfield Recruitment Day is returning to the borough for a third time in less than a year, offering residents employment prospects, skills-building workshops, and valuable networking opportunities.

The in-person event will be on 11 July 2024, from 10am to 2pm at Southbury Leisure Centre, and welcomes job seekers, graduates, seasoned professionals, or those looking for a career change.

Nearly 1,000 pre-registrations to attend have been received so far, making this one of the biggest recruitment events in recent times in the borough. However, we would welcome walk-ins between 12PM and 1PM on the day.

National employers such as Metroline will be in attendance, along with various local colleges, training providers and industry representatives from areas such as construction, healthcare and more.

A new addition includes Dress for Success, an organisation that offers a variety of services, including professional clothing and coaching for unemployed women to help them become interview-ready and succeed in the workforce.   To further strengthen job prospects, the CV workshop will also return.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Regulatory Services, Cllr Susan Erbil, said: “With every recruitment event, we can see an increase in confidence from our residents to kick-start their careers. At last spring’s Recruitment Day alone, we welcomed more than 650 attendees, who had the chance to network with employers and training providers.

“Many continued the conversation following the event, which resulted in multiple candidates having their CVs shortlisted, being offered an interview, or being accepted into a training course. Our upcoming summer Recruitment Day will continue to provide a platform that champions sustainable employment to local people, whilst helping develop vital skills to access good quality work.”

This event is supported by Enfield Council in partnership with Local London, DWP, Job Centre Plus and Maximus.

Enfield Council plans to host another free Recruitment Day in the autumn of 2024. To stay updated, follow Enfield Council on X, LinkedIn or Facebook, or sign up for our newsletters here.
