Westsound Careers Event - The Usual Place

At the start of October, our team participated in the Westsound Recruitment Fair 2016, at The Usual Place in Dumfries. We provided information and advice to those in attendance regarding the various job opportunities and programmes avaiable across the region and the event provided a great opportunity to network with partner organisations. At the event we referred a number of people to the service and subsequently followed up with them in a bid to help them find employment. A number of these people had been affected by the recent redundancies at Penman's and Minerva and we were able to offer them advice and support moving forward.
