Local MP Jo Swinson has teamed up with the Jobcentre Plus to run a jobs fair in East Dunbartonshire. The event will take place on 26 September from 10:30am-1pm at the Southbank Marina in Kirkintilloch. Jo and Jobcentre Plus are both keen to reduce unemployment in the constituency further and to get more people back into work.
Commenting Jo said:
“Creating more jobs and opportunities – particularly for young people – is currently top of the Liberal Democrat list of priorities.
“Any young or unemployed person in East Dunbartonshire who would like information on jobs or modern apprenticeships should come along to the fair on the 26th to find out more.
“It will be a great opportunity for people to get advice, make some contacts and hopefully secure a position to kick start their career.
