The third UK Employability Day will take place on Friday 29 June 2018.
Local organisations helping people into work – such as businesses, training providers, careers advisers, housing associations, charities, local authorities and community groups – have the chance to be part of the biggest Employability Day yet.
In eight weeks times, hundreds of organisations across the country will throw open their doors and celebrate their work supporting people into employment.
Last year, over 200 centres took part, with a number of high-profile visitors, including the Home Secretary and the Scottish Minister for Employability and Training, as well as local politicians, employers and jobseekers.
There’s still plenty of time to organise an event, from jobs fairs, activity mornings and street stalls, to debates and open days. Employability Day is coordinated by ERSA, the representative body for the employment support sector.
Kirsty McHugh, ERSA’s Chief Executive, says: ‘Every day, employment support helps people into work, improves lives and strengthens communities. Employability Day is the perfect opportunity for frontline organisations and employers to demonstrate the work they do to serve their local areas, from running advice sessions, delivering qualifications and connecting people to job opportunities. Now in its third year, Employability Day 2018 promises to be bigger than ever, helping to highlight the extraordinary support being delivered in communities across the UK.’
