Indeed and Brentford FC aim to boost local employment through jobs fair

Hundreds are expected at the Gtech Community Stadium, Brentford, on Wednesday 14 June for an in-person jobs fair.

Global matching and hiring platform Indeed is joining forces with Brentford FC Community Sports Trust to boost employment prospects for local people.

With the rate of unemployment among 18-24-year-olds reaching its highest level in two years, the event on 14 June aims to connect young jobseekers in West London with actively hiring employers, as well as promoting apprenticeships, internships and training opportunities.

Employers including the Ministry of Justice, VolkerFitzpatrick, Thames Water, Essex Police, the NHS and Brentford FC will promote their opportunities, while advisers from the Department of Work and Pensions and other careers experts will also be on hand to guide jobseekers.

For around 165 people, the jobs fair marks their successful graduation from the Indeed Skills Lab, a three-month community programme geared to support young local unemployed people in kick-starting their careers. The scheme, which launched in April, has featured a series of work-ready workshops focusing on advice and skills, including job search, CV writing and interview techniques.
