Engineering industry jobs fair

Rolls-Royce, Derby

Rolls-Royce and a group of local partners, which includes the Midlands Aerospace Alliance, are arranging a Jobs Fair at Rolls-Royce in Derby.

For employers, this is an excellent opportunity to identify potential new employees with very strong skillsets in a variety of engineering and management disciplines. Employers are invited to participate 10:00-16:00 plus set-up and clear up.

The Jobs Fair will help find alternative employment for Rolls-Royce employees who have shown an interest in other local opportunities as a consequence of workforce restructuring reductions. The jobs fair will be open to all employees during three timed sessions, morning and afternoon, to enable all to attend.

Here is a summary skillset list of the employees (about 400) who are expected to attend and who will be available later in 2019 to take up new roles:

The above roles give an indication of the types of employee skills and valuable experience that will be available.

Employees will be encouraged to attend the jobs fair with copies of their CVs.

For attending employer representatives at the Jobs Fair, refreshments (tea, coffee and water) will be complimentary on the day and there will be a bar food service facility available for you to purchase lunch on-site.
