Cape Breton Island, NS – Are you looking for a new employment opportunity? Or, are you an employer with open job postings available? Local job-seekers and employers are encouraged to attend the upcoming Cape Breton – Unama’ki Job Fair Series scheduled for April 4 – 14, 2023.
Presented free of charge by the Cape Breton Partnership, Cape Breton Job Board, and the Province of Nova Scotia, the Job Fair Series will include four Job Fairs, held 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Port of Sydney (April 4); Inverness Fire Hall (April 5); Louisdale Lions Club Hall (April 13); and Inverary Resort (April 14). Over 40 employers and service providers have signed up so far for the events, with several attending more than one session, and both seasonal and year-round employment opportunities available. Over 200 job-seekers have also registered so far across the four Job Fairs.
“Our local employers are the backbone of the economy here in Cape Breton – Unama’ki, and they’re limited by the staffing challenges facing the entire region,” says Tyler Mattheis, President & CEO of the Cape Breton Partnership. “Finding that next shining star employee or that rewarding career change can be as easy as attending one of the upcoming job fairs and striking up a conversation. We’re proud to host this event to facilitate those conversations and new connections.”
Local employers attending the series will also be able to connect with the Cape Breton Partnership’s Labour, Immigration, and Human Resources Services, with staff dedicated to each topic available during and after the job fairs to explore employers’ options to address their labour needs.
“We’ve been speaking with a number of employers who are struggling to fill their labour needs and are forced to make hard choices as a result,” says Jessica MacDonald, Human Resources Advisor for the Cape Breton Partnership. “Having the chance to meet job-seekers from across the Island and speak face-to-face will give employers a competitive advantage in attracting the talent they need to grow their business.”
Those interested in attending as a job-seeker, or as a participating employer, can find out more about the event and register at https://capebretonpartnership.com/cape-breton-unamaki-job-series/. Pre-registration is encouraged.
