The Greater Lincolnshire LEP is hosting a series of online jobs and careers fairs in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Despite the current challenges that people and business are facing, there are local employers who are recruiting right now. Getting together physically in a traditional jobs fair is not possible at the moment. The purpose of the Online Jobs and Career Fair Series is to bring people and business together in one place at the same time, so that job and training opportunities can be shared. The Greater Lincolnshire LEP is working in partnership with many organisations across the Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland area to make the series a success.
You can now view the custom built, online platform which will host all of the live fairs – go to www.greaterlincsjobsfair.co.uk
Visitors to the site during live events will be able to speak to employers, browse information, chat to training organisations and find support. Live Jobs and Careers Fair events will take place throughout 2021. Information will remain available on the site in-between live events.
Dates for future fairs can be found here.

"The GLLEP Online Fair was really helpful. The site was informative and easy to navigate and I visited a range of stalls and spoke to several employers... The chat function and ability to request video calls were useful […], and enabled me to establish connections that have already led to a development in my job search".
