Kenneth Gibson MSP and I organised an Employment Fayre in Beith Community Centre in on Friday and it was a huge success.
Hundreds of local residents of all ages and skills levels attended as did significant numbers of young people from our local schools.
With big companies such as Scotland Transerve, Loganair, Rolls-Royce plc, the Civil Nuclear Constabulary. Scottish Ambulance Service, Police Scotland, Ferguson Marine Engineering, Morrison Construction and Drumbia, Dawn Meats Group and so many more - too many to mention!
With over 50 employers actively recruiting on the day in a whole range of skill sets from Modern Apprenticeships, Adult Apprenticeships, for those seeking a career change, for a range of jobseekers with a whole range of skills sets and none, there was something for everyone.
The feedback from local jobseekers and local schools has been extremely positive.
