Virtual Job Fair Shines Spotlight on Strive Employers

< back to news

At Strive Training, we’re proud of our expanding network of partnerships with local and national employers, such as Waitrose and the Civil Service. We’re always actively looking for the right job opportunities for our motivated learners, which is why we were delighted to host our first Virtual Job Fair. 

Strive Training’s Virtual Job Fair was the perfect opportunity to bring together our learners and employers to explore some of the most exciting job opportunities available. During the event, learners had the chance to hear directly from our employer network about working with their organisation, learn about exclusive job vacancies, and discover the right job opportunity and employer for them! 

We were fortunate to be joined by some of top employers, including:

Achieve Together

Their team of expert practitioners proudly deliver high-quality support to more than 2,000 people in over 350 services across England and Wales. The organisation is regularly looking for Support Workers across multiple branches around London.

Cre8 Football

Cre8 Football is a not-for-profit organisation based in Croydon that works with children, young people, and families to meet a sporting, social and educational need through weekly sports sessions (not just football!)
