Businesses across Flintshire struggling to recruit are being encouraged to take part in a jobs fair later this month.

Demand for workers is continuing to increase but companies are being hampered by a shortage of candidates, research suggests.

The overall availability of workers in the UK continued to fall rapidly according to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG.

Their latest survey of 400 recruitment agencies indicated that a shortage of candidates was restricting the ability of businesses to grow.

There is however some good news for local employers and job seekers alike, the annual Flintshire Jobs Fair will resume this spring after a three-year absence.

So far 50 local companies and organisations have signed up to take part in the jobs fair which takes place at Deeside Leisure Centre at the end of April.

Organised by Communities For Work Flintshire, Jobcentre Plus and Careers Wales the free event takes place on Thursday, April 28 between 10am to 2pm.

Paul Murphy from Jobcentre Plus said: “It will be a great opportunity to promote your business and find potential employees. ”

“In previous years over 800 people have attended and the event was supported by numerous employers with over 500 vacancies available in a variety of sectors.”

“There will also be practical advice on hand including a CV checkpoint area and help to write application forms from Careers Wales. ”
