Acorn Recruitment and Newport City Council are joining forces to support local people in finding new opportunities for work this January.

The leading recruiter will visit four areas of the city throughout the last week of January to help local residents find out more about the kinds of roles available.

Sessions will take place in partnership with the Council at community hubs centrally and in the North, East and West of the city on the following dates:

  • January 24th - Ringland Community Centre - 10-3pm
  • January 25th - Bettws Library - 10am to 3pm
  • January 26th - Pill Millennium Centre - 1pm to 5pm
  • January 28th - Maesglas Community Centre - 10am to 3pm

The sessions will offer information on all kinds of jobs available across a wide range of sectors, and places should be booked in advance.

Councillor Deb Davies, Newport City Council’s cabinet member for education and skills, said: “I’m delighted the council is partnering with Acorn Recruitment to offer employment opportunities to residents by holding job events in our neighbourhood hubs across the city.

“Acorn is a local business with an excellent reputation and I would encourage anyone in the city who is looking for work, or a change of career, to go to one of these events and take those first steps to making 2022 the year you find a great new job.”

Acorn Recruitment works with hundreds of UK and international businesses to bring UK job seekers the best job opportunities available through its network of more than 40 branches nationwide, as well as through its specialist divisions.

First established in Newport in 1992, the company is headed up today by Managing Director Bernard Ward from its headquarters, which have remained in the city ever since.

Bernard said: “We place over 6,000 people into temporary roles every week and help around 1,700 people find a permanent role every year, so we’d like to think our insight into the UK jobs market is as good as anybody’s.

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Newport City Council to support people in our home city, and who may be looking to make a change professionally, to make the most of the many opportunities available to them here on their own doorstep.”
