Job vacancies from across the Fraserburgh area will be available at an event taking place this Thursday (January 28).

The jobs fair at the North East Scotland College Fraserburgh Campus is open to anyone from the local area who is looking for work or affected by recent redundancies and will run from 10am until 4pm.

Business Minister Fergus Ewing said: “This is a major event to help Young’s Seafood staff, and anyone affected by redundancy, to find alternative employment by offering the chance to speak to interested employers and find out about potential new jobs.

“It is one strand of the support that’s being offered through our initiative for responding to redundancy situations, Partnership Action for Continuing Employment, (PACE) which is already providing on site skills development and employability support to all Young’s Seafood staff.”

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) leads on the delivery of PACE support on behalf of the Scottish Government in conjunction with a number of key partners including the Department for Work and Pensions.

The event also forms part of the work of the Fraserburgh Taskforce.

Ally Allen, PACE Chair for Aberdeen City and Shire, said: “A wide range of employers will be advertising vacancies, including those in the seafood sector and beyond, and there will be interpreters available to help as well.

“Face-to-face advice and support will also be on offer from SDS and a number of partners including the local Job Centre Plus, Aberdeenshire Council and North East Scotland College, covering a range of topics from careers advice to job hunting and training opportunities.”
