We are inviting employers to come and engage with us and tell us what you need and want in an employee, what kind of opportunities you may have in 2018 and what we can do to help, this will help us to get a better knowledge of the jobs market and allow us to tailor our training delivery accordingly for our customers, to give them better chances of securing local employment.

We are also encouraging unemployed people in the community to come along and speak to us about their aspirations and the options available to them, including training, volunteering and rewarding opportunities.


If you as an employer or employment provider would like to participate please let Alyson know on 07887490790 or come along between 12 and 3pm.


We would like to arrange to come and speak to you as an employer and discuss our EAP Employer Assistance Programme and what Lochaber Hope Employability Division can do to help you and your workforce in 2018.
