OVER 300 people attended a West Dunbartonshire jobs fair.

The event allowed those looking for work to meet with employers to find out about opportunities that are available.

Organised by West Dunbartonshire Council’s Working4U team, 321 job seekers attended with 25 employers discussing available roles.

The council also worked in partnership with Bellsmyre digital community, renting their ICT suite within the Concord Centre.

Councillor Gurpreet Singh Johal, convener of housing and communities, said: “It is great to see so many people turn out for this successful event to find out more about the available opportunities.

“I want to thank the council’s Working4U team for organising the jobs fair and I hope this leads to a bright future for the job seekers who attended.”

Councillor Hazel Sorrell, vice convener of Housing and Communities, added: “I am sure this will have been a positive experience for both those looking for work and the employers seeking staff.”

The event was funded by the Scottish Government's No-one Left Behind programme.
