Staff from YHN’s employability team will be on hand for the duration of the online event, offering follow up advice and support for anyone making contact on the day.
Jen Vinton, Customer Services Director at YHN, said: “We know that many of our customers have seen their incomes affected by the coronavirus outbreak and the same is true for people across the city. With this in mind, we wanted to offer a helping hand to anyone looking for work by partnering with employers to showcase the current vacancies in the city.
“With social distancing measures in place, a digital event seemed like the perfect option and we’re thrilled that so many employers have got involved. We’re really excited to host it and hope that this will be a real benefit to anyone currently looking for new opportunities.”
