  • Spring Into Work Employment Events

    Spring Into Work is a brand new programme of friendly, pressure-free employment events launching this Spring. Open to all residents of south Manchester, Spring into Work offers careers support and information, as well as access to loads of varied current jobs, training opportunities and apprenticeships - all culminating in a huge Jobs Fair in April.

    We know that formal employment events can be daunting and speaking to recruiters can be a challenge for us all; what makes our events different is we will be there to guide you and make you feel welcome, and support you into having a successful experience when talking to potential employers.

    The events include our Jobs Fair and Employer Presentations at local community centres throughout April. Read more here.
