Angela Crawley MP for Lanark and Hamilton East has thanked hundreds of her constituents for attending her jobs fair in Carluke Leisure Centre last Friday, May 27.
30 stallholders participated in the fair – offering a range of training opportunities, apprenticeships, part and full-time posts, as well as graduate positions.
Over 300 people came along and the local MP is currently in the process of preparing a second jobs fair, this time to be held in Hamilton.
Commenting, Angela said:
“One of the most pressing issues across Lanark and Hamilton East is the issue of unemployment or underemployment.
“When I was first elected, I promised to serve my constituents needs and respond to their concerns.
“By bringing large employers and agencies from across the country to my constituency, I hope to give people more and better opportunities further their careers.
“The feedback I have had so far is that the event was extremely useful and worthwhile.
“If anyone missed out on the event, I will be hosting a second jobs fair later in the year. Keep an eye out for more details.”
