Successful careers fair showcases job opportunities in local health service

Over one hundred people attended a careers fair highlighting job opportunities in the health service.

The information and recruitment event, which took place at Ty Pawb, was held by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in partnership with Communities for Work Plus, Job Centre Plus and Wrexham County Borough Council.

With more than 100 people attending to find out more information, the event allowed Wrexham Maelor Hospital’s facilities team to share more about the work they do to help hospital services to function.

Cllr Nigel Williams, Lead Member for Economy and Regeneration said: “This event was a huge success and it will hopefully be the first of many more similar events in the future.

“Events like this can make it easier and simpler for people to apply for jobs and in turn can also make it easier for employers to recruit.

“It’s great to see such a successful example of partnership working that has already lead to the health board recruiting some excellent candidates.”

Gwen Scotson Facilities Manager, Wrexham Maelor Hospital, said: “We were very pleased indeed with the fantastic turnout to our first Facilitates Information/Recruitment event and grateful to the many excellent applicants who came to find out more about the posts we have on offer.

“We have already made provisional permanent job offers to a number of successful applicants and will be making further offers in the coming days.

“Working in collaboration with Communities for Work Plus and the council was a new experience for me, and I’m grateful that they gave me the confidence to go ahead with such an event.”
