Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council are organising a large careers event ‘Blackburn with Darwen is Hiring’, due to take place at Blackburn Cathedral on Thursday 14th September. The event will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm and will be attended by schools (age 15 upwards), further and higher education students and those not currently engaged in employment, education or training (from within the borough and beyond). The event is also open to adults who may be actively seeking employment or who are looking to upskill or for a new opportunity.
Along with a large number of employers, representing a variety of sectors, post 16 learning and training providers will also be present. In total, 95 exhibitors will fill both the Cathedral and its outdoor spaces and many will offer a ‘hands on’ experience of a rich variety of employment opportunities, including apprenticeships. A number of short workshops will also be on offer, aiming to support young people in the recruitment process, and to raise awareness of the wide range of employment opportunities in specific sectors.
