Siobhan was invited to attend a face-to-face interview and was successful in achieving a full time position as an Admin Assistant.
Siobhan said ‘’I attended the Job Fayre last month after being encouraged by my local Job Centre. I am so glad I did as I have now been given an amazing opportunity to show what I can do and potentially progress further into the company.’’
Patricia Gibson MP added, “I am delighted that James Frew Ltd - a well-respected local company - was able to attend my recent Employment Fayre in Stevenston and has now recruited a local jobseeker as a result.
“Employment Fayres are an excellent way for local jobseekers to meet and engage with employers and learn more about jobs and opportunities on offer in their area. Having had several Employment Fayres since I was first elected which have been very well attended with very positive feedback from both local employers and jobseekers; it is always good news to hear of successful outcomes.
I wish James Frew Ltd.’s newest recruit a long and successful career with the company”
