Story Homes is the main sponsor at the next Carlisle Skills Fair, which aims to help hundreds of young people in the area get into training and employment, and help businesses tackle growing skills shortages.
The event is being hosted by Carlisle MP John Stevenson and takes place at The Sands Centre on Thursday 28 January.
Story Homes, along with around 90 other employers and training organisations will be exhibiting at the Skills Fair, offering career advice and helpful hints and tips. The team from Story Homes are also offering masterclasses in CV Writing and Interview Skills to support young people with the recruitment process.
Steve Errington, Chief Executive of Story Homes said: “We have ambitious growth plans here at Story Homes. We’re currently in the process of expanding our business now that we’ve established two new bases in the North East and North West.
“To support this growth we have a huge number of career opportunities across a range of roles including administration, finance, engineering and design as well as bricklaying and joinery. We’re committed to providing the very best training opportunities for our colleagues and as we expand into new areas, we want to secure a pipeline of talent for the future. As such, Story Homes can provide young people with a very successful, long-term career. The Skills Fair is a great opportunity for us to talk about current and upcoming vacancies as well as opportunities for those considering work placements and apprenticeships.”
Shelley Hayward, Talent and Development Manager said: “To coincide with the Skills Fair we are also launching our next exciting apprenticeship scheme and will be working with schools in all of our regions. Events like this really help us promote and bring to life the types of opportunities open to young people.”
