Jobs on offer at Cafe and Fair

Agricultural, engineering and horticultural apprenticeships in Chatteris and Wisbech were among the job opportunities on offer at last month’s Jobs Café in Wisbech.

There were also opportunities for people looking for residential care work with young people who have emotional and behavioural needs.

The vacancies were being advertised through EDGE Apprenticeships in Food & Farming and Direct Care.

The Café is open on the second Thursday of each month at the Queen Mary Centre in Queens Road. It offers free advice and support to anyone seeking work, training, volunteering or apprenticeship opportunities.

Anyone can drop in between 10am and 2pm.

The next one is next Thursday (March 12). Next month the Queen Mary Centre will also be hosting the 2015 Fenland Jobs and Skills Fair.

Last year the event attracted more than 400 people and featured over 30 key Fenland businesses, as well as the College of West Anglia and the Prince’s Trust.

This year’s fair is on Thursday, April 9 (10am-4pm).

Any businesses that would like to attend should call Amy Wilson, Fenland District Council’s economic development manager, on 01354 654321 or email businessdevelopment@fenland.gov.uk
