Crowngate Jobs Fair

Unwrap a new career this festive season at the Recruit Crowngate Christmas jobs fair. From 10am till 2pm on Thursday 28th September, Recruit Crowngate will be hosting a jobs fair at Crowngate Shopping Centre.

The fair offers local unemployed people the opportunity to meet with retailers which are looking to fill their seasonal store vacancies. Many local businesses are expected at the fair, including Wilkinson’s, Card Party, Greene King, the Army Reserves,  RAF Recruitment and Churchill Service Solutions.  New Look, Debenhams and Clinton’s also have vacancies that will be advertised at the event.

The fair takes place at 9 Friary Walk, Crowngate Shopping Centre, Worcester, WR1 3LE (opposite New Look). Jobseekers are advised to attend with an up-to-date CV in order to take advantage of the opportunity to sign up to Recruit Crowngate and the chance to be matched to vacancies both on the day and following the event.

Recruit Regional is an employment and training initiative set up by The Crown Estate in partnership with Heart of Worcestershire College. It is a free, professional recruitment service for local people, helping them to secure jobs with retailers within Crowngate Shopping Centre and other local businesses. 

Launched in February 2017, Recruit Crowngate is hugely popular with local businesses and jobseekers alike, and has already seen over 20 jobseekers gain employment locally.

Workplace Coordinator for Recruit Crowngate, Francesca Gibbs said: “Many Crowngate retailers are successfully using this initiative as a means of sourcing talented staff locally, something that they need even more of over the busy festive season.  For jobseekers, the fair is the perfect opportunity to meet with city centre employers and improve their chances of finding work.”

Crowngate Centre Manager, Erica Burlace added: “We really enjoy working closely with local businesses as well as our own centre retailers to help them recruit new staff. Recruit Crowngate also plays a really important role in preparing people their new role. Worcester city centre is a great place to work, and this is the perfect opportunity for people to land a great job locally in time for Christmas.”
