Fife Council to host jobs fair in Glenrothes

People working for Fife Council

FOLLOWING the success of last September’s jobs fair in Dunfermline, Fife Council are planning to host a similar event in May.  It will be held at Rothes Halls in Glenrothes on 15th May 2024, from 10am-2pm.

Last year’s event was the first of its kind and promoted the wide range of job vacancies and career opportunities with Fife Council.  Organised in partnership with DWP, around 550 people came to find out about working with the council.  They had the opportunity to speak to current staff about vacancies and for some roles, there were interviews and job offers.

This year, staff will once again be on hand to talk to people about vacancies and what it's like to work with the council.  Speak to employees from catering, IT, active schools, cleaning, early years and pupil support, childcare, adult social care, waste operations and many more.

There will also be a chance of support from staff in our job clubs and employability teams, who will be there for an informal chat about interests, skills and experience and help match people to vacancies.  They can also offer help with the online application process.

Head of Human Resources, Sharon McKenzie said: "Our workforce makes a difference in all sorts of ways. They care for our elderly, inspire youngsters in the classroom, keep our parks well maintained, fill potholes, and help secure housing for homeless families. They empty bins, cook school dinners, answer emergency calls on our community alarms line, support businesses to expand and boost the local economy. 

“We have a variety of contract options including part time, term time and full time and, in some cases, varied and flexible shift patterns too.”

She continued: "We'd love to see anyone who might be interested in a career with the council. Come along and find out what working for us is all about. We can offer the Scottish Local Government Living Wage, training opportunities for career progression, a generous paid holiday allowance, a pension scheme, flexible working opportunities, employee discount schemes and lifestyle benefits including a cycle to work scheme.

“We are looking forward to seeing lots of attendees and are sure that it will be a worthwhile event for those who come along.  Please pop along on the day to find out more.”
