Opportunity Melksham is an event that provides an opportunity for young people who are leaving school, currently unemployed or considering a career change to:
- find out about employment opportunities
- speak to local and national businesses
- speak to professional recruitment specialists
- learn more about self-employment, training, volunteering and internship opportunities
The key aims of the event are:
- Increase awareness of employment opportunities
- Introduce prospective employers to final year students and young people who may be seeking employment or a career change
- Introduce attendees to entrepreneurial project sponsors
- Initiate the networking process between attendees and prospective employers
- Facilitate the opportunities for attendees to gain employment or access training
- Stimulate interest in career development possibilities
- Support a strong and vibrant community spirit
We are committed to supporting young people not in education, employment or training; Opportunity Melksham provides the ideal platform to fulfil this commitment.
We are planning to hold the next Opportunity Melksham in 2016; more news and information about this soon!
