Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Recruitment Fair To Be Held at Fire Service Family Day

10/09/2014

Job seekers are invited to a recruitment fair being held at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Family Day.

 “Our Family Day attracts thousands of people so we thought it was the ideal opportunity to run a recruitment fair at the same time. It will be very relaxed and informal so hopefully those people who find recruitment fairs a bit daunting will feel comfortable enough to just pop in whilst also enjoying everything else on offer at the Family Day

Recruitment Advisor for Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Julie Edwards.

The event is being held at the organisation’s headquarters at Pirehill, Stone on Saturday, September 20 from 12 noon – 4pm.

The recruitment fair will be attended by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Stoke-on-Trent College and Jaguar Landrover.

As well as having the opportunity to speak to employers about available positions, there will be free sessions on writing job applications, producing a CV and interview techniques.
