Building Better Opportunities: Getting Cumbria to Work (BBO GCtW)

As part of the BBO GCtW project, a Job Fair will take place on Wednesday 11 September 2019 from 10.30am – 12.30pm at the Nan Tait Centre, Abbey Road, Barrow.
The aim of this event is to provide people with the opportunity to learn more about “employment” opportunities in the south of the county – whether that be a work placement, a volunteering opportunity and/or an actual employment position – and to share experiences and learning.  A range of employers and local organisations, including the delivery partners within the project – Cadas, Women’s Community Matters, Imagine Independence, Right2Work and The Well CIC – will be in attendance, providing advice and information on the opportunities available.
Although the event is primarily aimed at current, future and past participants of the BBO GCtW project, anyone/everyone is welcome – so please feel free to come along, find out more about the project, meet the BBO GCtW team, meet local businesses and educational providers and see what opportunities are available locally. This will be the first event of this kind for the project and we hope that it will provide a positive experience for all.
