The South West is to hold its first ever dedicated diversity and equality recruitment careers event.
The Diversity Careers 2011 Event takes place on the 14th October in At-Bristol, the hands-on science centre on Bristol’s harbourside, and is a free event featuring Top100 employers from all over the UK as well as some of the largest employers and support networks in the South West.
Diversity Careers works all year round providing careers advice, CV writing, interview skills workshops as well as working with both companies and jobseekers to improve skillsets and champion equality within a variety of industries. Due to demand for more support and opportunity from job seekers from all communities across the South West as well as employers keen to show their commitment to diversity we bring you a multi-spectrum diversity event which will bring together students, graduates and all job seekers with employers who value, and actively support, a diverse work force.
Thousands of people from all over the South West and farther afield are expected to attend and have the chance to meet with scores of employers and our special partners: Enterprise Cars, BBC, Hewlett Packard, Neal’s Yard Remedies, Open University, Ernst & Young, UWE, University of Bristol, Atass Sport, Beachcroft and TLT law firms who are all keen to speak to people from a diverse backgrounds, as well as those keen to work for an employer who values their workforce.
The event is also working with LGBT charity, Stonewall and will feature seminars on Diversity and Inclusiveness in the Workplace from Ernst and Young, Diversity in Action from GE Energy, KPMG will running a session on their school leavers programme and Diversity Careers will be running a session on interview skills and CV’s.
Event Organiser and Director of Diversity Careers, Daryn Carter comments:
‘This event offers the chance to connect employers who truly value diversity with top class job seekers from all over the South West. As well as the chance to meet, network, gain information and be truly inspired by organisation from all over the UK, people will also get the chance to speak to support groups, networks and retailers. There was such a demand for more support and access to opportunities from the communities I work with it’s been great to see so many organisation coming forward and showing their commitment to diversity and equality.
Running from 10am – 6pm the event continues into the evening with a special networking event, featuring employers and professional networking groups, at the Shore Bar, Prince Street.
