Manchester City Football Club is preparing to host a sprawling jobs fair with thousands of roles at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.

The event, described as “the first of its kind in Manchester” is aimed at matching local people with viable job opportunities – with more than 80 Greater Manchester organisations in attendance.

Taking place on Friday 30 July and Saturday 31 July, the jobs fair will feature reps from a variety of sectors – with opportunities ranging from entry level apprenticeships to full-time employment, as well as training courses.

A series of workshops will also be hosted by Man City representatives on career advice and guidance.

Councillor Gavin White, executive member for housing and employment at Manchester City Council, said: “The pandemic has had a massive impact on people’s jobs and livelihoods and a key priority for us as we emerge from it is helping support our local residents back into work.


“The marketplace event provides a brilliant one-stop shop for people of all ages to connect directly with leading local employers and hear more about the kind of jobs and training opportunities available and to apply directly for them.”

The jobs fair will be free to attend but pre-registration is required.
