HULL TO HOST SOCIAL CARE JOBS FAIR

 

A special social care jobs fair has been organised by the University of Lincoln in Hull next week.

 

The fair will take place on Wednesday 1st December in the refectory café on the ground floor of the Derek Crothall building on George Street.

 

Around 15 social care representatives from around the East Midlands and Yorkshire are expected to attend the event, which aims to help students get an idea of what professions they may wish to consider after graduating from the university.

 

Representatives from local authorities in Lincolnshire, Hull, Doncaster, Nottingham, Wakefield and East Riding as well as from a number of social work agencies in Leeds and the surrounding areas will be on hand to talk about potential jobs in social care.

 

The jobs fair has been organised by Lynne Wilson and Barbara Cobbold, two senior lecturers in Social Care at the university.

 

“The jobs fair will give students a host of future employment prospects and is the chance for employers to show what they have to offer,” said Barbara.

 

“It should be a good opportunity for third-year students to get a feel for the kind of employment opportunities that may be available to them at the end of their courses, and it will also benefit first and second year students by highlighting vocational agency work that may be available over the summer.”

 

The jobs fair will take place between 12 noon and 2pm and is only available to Social Work and Managing Social Care students. For more information call Barbara on Tuesday 30th November on (01482) 311236 or email bcobbold@lincoln.ac.uk.
