JOB seekers will get expert advice on finding work from a global recruitment agency which has teamed up with Wakefield Wildcats.
M2R, the Wildcats’ official recruitment partner, will run employment workshops using the same techniques used to headhunt staff for top international companies.
The firm, which has filled several key positions at the Wildcats, will run two-hour sessions at the Learning Zone at the club’s Rapid Solicitors stadium on Wednesday, December 7.
Places are limited and job seekers are invited to apply by e-mailing their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of what they would like to learn from the workshop.
Wakefield Wildcats chief executive James Elston said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the people of Wakefield to get some expert employment and career advice.
“M2R have recruited a number of new employees here at the club and their knowledge and experience is second to none. I am very pleased that we are working closely with M2R once again and look forward to meeting all the attendees in December.”
People taking part in the workshop will be able to search for jobs on the internet with expert guidance form M2R, and will leave with an information pack.
M2R managing director Munir Mamujee, who has helped recruit for firms including Saudi Aramco, the world’s biggest state oil company, hoped the event would help improve jobless figures in Wakefield.
Mr Mamujee said: “For numerous reasons it is impossible for us to carry every single vacancy in Wakefield but we can show people where they are and how to apply.
“We are delighted at the support shown by the Wakefield Wildcats in helping to organise this true community project.”
