TSC Foods, which specialises in chilled and frozen food product development, will be recruiting for over 10 vacancies on the day.

North Lincolnshire Council will also be in attendance, showcasing over 30 job vacancies.

The event will attract a wide range of employers from across Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland, such as the NHS, Lincolnshire County Council, RAF Rejoiners, Morrisons Lowlands Nurseries in South Holland, and various local colleges and training providers.

MP for Scunthorpe Holly Mumby-Croft said: “It really is a pleasure to host this month's Greater Lincolnshire LEP online jobs fair.

“Having worked closely with businesses in my constituency throughout the pandemic I know that there is great potential in our area as businesses fully reopen and bounce back.”

She added: “This event is a showcase of both the opportunities for residents in our area, and the potential and talent we have in North Lincolnshire and beyond. It brings together both employers and job seekers alike and I urge everyone interested to take part.”

The online jobs fair series has proved popular over previous months, having been created as a response to economic difficulties faced by the area as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.   

Most employers advertise over 10 job vacancies per fair, and several offer over 20 vacancies in multiple roles.

Since its inception in November 2020, the jobs fair website has welcomed over 10,000 visitors from across Greater Lincolnshire and further afield and has hosted over 160 exhibitors ranging from local employers and education and training providers to support services. 

The fair will be live from 10am until 1pm and is accessible through the LEP’s custom-built website here.
