  • Spring & Fall into Work

    Open to all residents of south Manchester, our Spring & Fall into Work events are free and welcoming spaces where you can get careers support and advice, plus access to lots of varied jobs and training opportunities.

    These include our Jobs Fairs and Employer Presentations.

    We know that formal employment events can be daunting and speaking to recruiters can be a challenge. What makes this programme different is that Southway staff are here to guide and support you into having a successful experience when talking to potential employers.

    Our next event is:

    Meet the employer: Arriva
