Massive Interest From Job Seekers

Massive Interest From Job Seekers

 1 Mar 2017

​​Thursday 23rd February saw the 3rd annual Swindon Jobfest held at the Steam Museum and showcasing 80 local and national employers.
C&D Group has supported the Swindon Jobfest since 2015 when the job fair first launched.  To be instrumental in aiding Wiltshire’s young job seekers find work and go on to establish fulfilling careers is a major motivator for C&D.
The C&D stand was staffed by our commercial and industrial recruitment consultants who spoke with job seekers about the opportunities and challenges in choosing a career and finding work.  C&D's Recruitment Apprentices were also on hand to interact with job seekers.  This was an ideal opportunity for our young apprentices to develop vital soft skills such as communication, requirements gathering, critical thinking and team participation.
The job fair presented C&D Group with the opportunity to promote employer brands to visiting job seekers and fellow business exhibitors.  To this end, our marketing desk provided a variety of informative literature.  In addition, the C&D Group stand also exhibited signage incorporating approved Nationwide Building Society branding, one of the UK’s top employers and a strategic C&D business partner.
On the day, nearly 600 job seekers attended the Swindon Jobfest and our recruiters found that visitors to the C&D Group stand were keen to engage.   Many visitors to the C&D stand submitted their curriculum vitas on the day or committed to registering their details online or at the C&D Swindon Recruitment Centre in Havelock Street.  Job seekers were open to a wide range of roles and particularly interested in working with employers who offered career or further learning opportunities.
Reviewing the event, C&D’s marketing office found that it was highly successful from a client and company branding perspective.  In addition, C&D’s apprentices gained excellent experience and their specialist recruitment consultants made valuable connections.
If you missed this outstanding careers fair, but still wish to register with C&D Group for jobs at some of the UK’s top employers, please email us at or call us on Tel. 01793 488057.
