Manufacturing Labour Market Information event - 29th June 2016

Over 30 careers professionals providing advice and guidance to young people across Hull and East Riding gathered in Hull to hear from companies in the Manufacturing Sector. 

The day consisted of a range of presentations by experts from industry and education, followed by a “meet the employees” speed networking session.  There was also a hands on activity with time for networking built into the day.

The day provided attendees with

  • an understanding of the sector
  • detailed information on the  different industries within the sector and the employability skills and qualifications the sector requires now and in the future
  • an insight in to the routes to progression within the sector
  • information on local job opportunities within this sector and entry routes into the industry and skills gaps the sector currently faces
  • a broader understanding of the importance of this sector to the local economy

Jayne Northey –DWP said “I now feel more able to promote the industry and understand the diverse range of roles available”.
