Melton Borough Council

Council Hosting Open Day and Course for Exciting Employment Opportunities

Published Monday, 1st February 2016

The Council is delighted to announce that it is working with Loughborough College and local Long Clawson employer K S Composites.

The aim is to provide a work skills course which aims to help Melton Mowbray residents gain access to local jobs.

This is a very exciting venture as K S Composites are looking for 15 great candidates who will complete a Level 1 Award in Work Skills and have a guaranteed interview with the employer. Exceptional candidates who complete the qualification and who are successful at the interview may be offered paid employment with K S Composites. The 5-week workshop is fully funded and will enable candidates to get interview ready for K S Composites.

On Saturday 13th February 2016 there will be an Open Day/Recruitment Event held at Phoenix House from 11am - 3pm. The programme starts on Monday 22nd February 2016 and will run on a Monday 6pm – 9pm (3 hours per week).
This opportunity is open to all over 19 Melton Mowbray residents currently employed or unemployed.

The potential candidates do not necessarily need previous experience in a similar role as training is provided should a job offer be made. This would particularly suit individuals who are methodical, have an eye for detail, can work from instructions and are passionate and enthusiastic about their work.

Any potential candidates should contact Me & My Learning on 01664 502389 to book a place on the open day/recruitment event. 

To be accepted on to the course candidates will be asked to put together a personal statement that includes why they want to work at K S Composites and what attributes they have (this can be hand written, typed or a video – whatever the candidate feels comfortable with). Candidates will be asked to either email this to meandmylearning@melton.gov.uk or drop it in to Me & My Learning during the telephone booking for the open day/recruitment event.

The Council is pleased to be working on this project with both K S Composites and Loughborough College and look forward to further partnership working in the future.
