Aberdeenshire Council is holding the event in partnership with Aberdeen Foyer, Skills Development Scotland and the Department for Work and Pensions.

A range of sectors will be taking part including engineering, hospitality, transport, care, construction, and local government.

The event is a great opportunity for job seekers to find out more about options available to them, and what businesses are looking for from applicants, giving them a stronger chance of securing a job.

It is a chance not only for businesses to recruit staff, but also for job hunters to get a foot in the door.

There will be facilities to complete application forms on the day, with support available to those who want it.

Vacancies with organisations unable to attend the event will be advertised on the day and visitors are encouraged to bring copies of their CVs.

Workshops will take place throughout the day on a range of subjects including starting your own business, redundancy support, and also CV building and interview skills.
