Job club vacancies

How do you rate this information / service?

What we do with your feedback

Employers looking to recruit in Cherwell.

Two very good and different reasons to be at Bicester job club this Friday, 31 October:

1. Kentucky Fried Chicken is going to be there with many varied vacancies, both full and part time. This is an excellent opportunity to discuss all the roles and the jobs that KFC have on offer.

2. Bicester Green will also be there. They have a number of areas that they're looking for voluntary help with:

Repair: Electronics: fixing computers, mobiles, cameras, etc. Furniture: painting, sprucing up, reinvigorating old tired items. Bike repair: learning and sharing skills in bicycle repair. Woodworking - building things to sell out of waste wood. Upholstery - learning how to upholster chairs.
 
Admin: Sales and marketing assistance: helping to sell their lovely items and spread the word about their training sessions. Accounting assistance - helping to keep the books in order and develop better systems.

This is another special opportunity not to be missed. The plan for Friday is an interactive session where you can use your hands to put together small bird boxes (which you can take home). They're hoping it will be engaging enough that those who participate and enjoy it will want to come and join them in the workshop to help - as well as learn things - while they continue with job hunting. Importantly Bicester Green are happy to provide references, assist your development and have a funded platform for skills to support you.

There are a number of vacancies at Bicester Green that might excite anyone who has been hoping to put their spare time to good use. They have a great team already, but there are some specific gaps they'd like to fill. Would you feel rewarded by becoming involved,volunteering your time and expertise?
