A (wet!) Jobs Fair
On Friday 6 July, a very wet morning, Michal Sydzisz, Group Operations Manager, and I attended a Jobs Fair at Goole High School organised by the Local Job Centre Plus. We had thought the event might be affected by the heavy rain but many people had still made the effort to attend. They were packed into the school hall and all of them wanted to visit our Kerfoot stand!
We were inundated with people wanting to know more about The Kerfoot Group, asking what our Company did and how they could get a job with us. We talked to them all about what made us so special and the bulk of people went away after completing an application form or leaving their CV with us.
We found it really beneficial to talk to job seekers about what we as an employer are looking for when we’re recruiting. Even if they don’t end up with a job with us they will hopefully have gone away with helpful advice. And who knows, we may well see some of those people in our factories and offices soon?!
