The Job Show North East

The Job Show™ North East, sponsored by MAKE it Sunderland, 18 May

MAKE it Sunderland, has teamed up with the UK’s fastest growing quality face-to-face recruitment and careers event to sponsor the return of The Job Show North East.

The nationally acclaimed event will take place on Thursday, 18th May 2017 at The Stadium of Light from 10.30 till 3pm. The free-to-enter event will showcase dozens of companies recruiting in a range of sectors.

Deputy Leader of Sunderland City Council, Councillor Harry Trueman said: “We are proud to be supporting The Job Show and are looking forward to the new employment it will help to create for the city and region.

Sunderland’s fantastic, talented workforce has earned a UK-wide reputation for outstanding productivity, loyalty and positive attitude. The Job Show approach gives thousands of jobseekers a unique opportunity to talk to many regional businesses and secure a new position.  There’s been a great response from employers and we’re expecting the Stadium of Light to be really buzzing when the Job Show opens its doors on 18 May.”

It is the latest in a long line of successful events for The Job Show  around the country that gather the region’s best employers, training providers, universities, colleges, recruitment agencies and organisations. The Job Show aims to give job seekers the perfect platform to unite talent with opportunity and come face-to-face with top employers seeking quality candidates.

The idea behind The Job Show  was sparked by the doom and gloom of the current tough economic climate, when the founders recognized a need to revitalize traditional job seeking strategies, firmly believing that ‘people buy people’ and a face-to-face meeting is vital in the digital age.

Victoria Clarke, Director of The Job Show went on to say:  “Due to the success of our previous show we are delighted to be back in the North East and thrilled MAKE it Sunderland are Sponsors of The Job Show. There will be exciting job opportunities on the day from some of the top recruiters in the North East as well as our dedicated Apprenticeship and Training Centre which will have on offer ‘live’ apprenticeships, information and guidance in careers as well as workshops for job seekers and professionals. We look forward to another successful and rewarding day!”
