Scotland’s largest health board is to host an interactive careers fayre showcasing job opportunities aimed at school pupils across Glasgow.
The event has been designed to give pupils, teachers and careers advisors an idea of the breadth of jobs available within healthcare and other disciplines through interactive workshops.
Held in collaboration with Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Glasgow, the event on Friday 07 June at Celtic Park, will showcase professions including:
Anne MacPherson, Director of Human Resources & Organisational Development, said: “Offering young people the opportunity to train in a skill which could shape their future is a role we’re very proud of.
“As a Board, we recognise the many talents young people can bring to our workforce and the benefits this has for our organisation and patients.
“This event is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase the organisation to the workforce of the future. Our engagement with schools is a key aspect of our careers awareness activity and is essential for us in promoting our employment opportunities and attracting the workforce of the future.”
Alison McRae, Senior Director, Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, which runs DYW Glasgow, said:
“Through our schools and business partnerships, and wider industry links, our aim is to enrich the learning journey for young people and increase the number of employers engaging with education.
“This event is a fantastic way of demonstrating the range of options available for young people within the NHS.
“We want to get the message out that there are a great number of options in the workplace for young people, and we hope this NHS event helps to demonstrate that.”
