Explore hundreds of opportunities across various employment sectors at the next Get Oldham Working (GOW) Career and Apprenticeship Fair.

With a wide range of apprenticeships, work experience openings, training courses and jobs on offer from various employers within the borough and beyond, this is a great chance for residents to start or further their careers.

One of the great myths around apprenticeships is that they are exclusive to the younger generation – this is incorrect. It doesn’t matter if you are 18 or 40, apprenticeships are open to anyone over the age of 16 and there is no upper age limit.

So whether you are job hunting for the first time, looking for a return to work, or searching for the next step in your career, this event is open to everyone and it’s free to attend – just turn up on the day, no booking is required.

Working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, the National Careers Service, and Ingeus, the fair runs from 9am-2pm on Wednesday 18 April at Oldham Library and Lifelong Learning Centre. 

Some of the employers attending this event include BT, United Utilities, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) and Oldham Coliseum. 

Parking is available just outside the venue at the Southgate Street Car Park and Metrolink’s Oldham Central stop is only a 2-3 minute walk away.

Staff from our GOW team and other partners will be available on the day to advise you about careers, apprenticeships and access to training.

There will also be plenty of space for you to complete any applications that you pick up, with additional support on hand in case you get stuck with any questions.
