New year, new career: Find your perfect job in 2020 with a little Xciting matchmaking

Council recruitment fair matches residents and employers

Is looking for a new job opportunity high on your list of things to do this year? Here’s a chance to put your CV out there with local employers and even meet your new boss. Game on, get set, let’s make a match!

Whether you’re out of work, looking for a new position or simply wanting to enhance your skills and develop your career, Harrow’s Xcite Employment Fair is the place to be. There will be lots of information, tips and advice at the free  event on Thursday 23 January at the Civic Centre.

And if you can’t wait that long, there is also a free skills and employment drop-in session at the Beacon, South Harrow, on Wednesday 15 January, too. This is a chance to view some of the current vacancies in the borough - including labourers, painters & decorators, fork lift drivers, recruitment coordinators and call centre jobs.

Keith Ferry, Portfolio Holder for Business, Planning and Regeneration, said: “Many people start the year with a list of resolutions – finding a dream job is often one of them. So, just a few weeks into 2020, we want to make it even easier for Harrow residents to find work or get the training they need.

“The Xcite Fair has everything under one roof – a chance to see what’s out there and for local employers to reach out and find the best people to take on. Fulfilling your new year’s resolution has never been simpler.”
