Opportunity Melksham

Opportunity Melksham is an event that provides an opportunity for young people who are leaving school, currently unemployed or considering a career change to:

  • find out about employment opportunities
  • speak to local and national businesses
  • speak to professional recruitment specialists
  • learn more about self-employment, training, volunteering and internship opportunities

The key aims of the event are:

  • Increase awareness of employment opportunities
  • Introduce prospective employers to final year students and young people who may be seeking employment or a career change
  • Introduce attendees to entrepreneurial project sponsors
  • Initiate the networking process between attendees and prospective employers
  • Facilitate the opportunities for attendees to gain employment or access training
  • Stimulate interest in career development possibilities
  • Support a strong and vibrant community spirit

We are committed to supporting young people not in education, employment or training; Opportunity Melksham provides the ideal platform to fulfil this commitment.

We are planning to hold the next Opportunity Melksham in 2016; more news and information about this soon!
