North East college group to host ‘career shaping’ recruitment events

Education Partnership North East is hosting a series of recruitment fairs to highlight the wide variety of employment opportunities available across its colleges.

The events, taking place at Northumberland College’s Kirkley Hall (Saturday 5 February, 9.30am-12.30pm) and Ashington (Saturday 12 February, 9.30am-12.30pm) campuses, as well as Sunderland College’s City Campus (Saturday 12 February, 9.30am-12.30pm), are open to everyone, from those who are just starting to think about their career options to jobseekers looking for permanent or casual work.

Offering specialist technical courses, A-Levels and T Levels, the colleges have vacancies for lecturers, instructors, and support staff in areas such as finance, administration, human resources, data analysis, exam invigilation, estates management and more.

Helen Willan, HR business partner, said: “Every day our staff inspire young people and adults to achieve their potential, life ambitions and career goals through education and training, or provide an essential support service that contributes to the success of the organisation.

“We are looking forward to meeting people who think they would be a great fit within one of our teams. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a job or career change to visit one of our recruitment fairs and find out more about working with us.

“There is no need to pre-register for the events and appropriate Covid measures will be in place.”
