AN event aimed at boosting Renfrewshire Council’s workforce will take place next month after being postponed due to the Covid pandemic.

The recruitment fair was due to be held in December but council chiefs pulled the plug amid growing concerns over the new Omicron variant.

However, the event will now take place at Park Mains High School, in Erskine, on Tuesday, February 15, from 10am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm.

The council currently has vacancies available in its soft facilities management team for caretakers, school crossing patrollers, housekeepers, cleaners and facilities operatives who will work in schools covering various duties, including cleaning, catering and compliance.

Candidates will be able to apply for the vacancies at the recruitment event.
Successful applicants will then be offered an immediate interview and can complete most of their recruitment checks on the day. 

Applications can also be submitted in advance through MyJobScotland, with successful applicants being invited to interviews at the recruitment event.
All applicants must bring proof of identification and two work related references with them to the event.

Councillor John Shaw, convener of the finance and resources policy board, said: "This recruitment event is a great opportunity to find out more about our soft facilities management team and how they make a difference to the lives of residents, communities, schools and nurseries every day.

"Renfrewshire is a Scottish Living Wage employer and has a lot to offer anyone considering a career in soft facilities management, from development opportunities to competitive terms and conditions.

"If you are interested in joining our team, please come along to our recruitment event or apply online at MyJobScotland."
