Good Afternoon,

It’s been a while but now we are recovering after two years of “disruption” our planning group are busy organising the 2023 “Caithness Jobs & How to Get Them Event”.

This event will be held in Thurso at the ETEC Building at the UHI Campus on Saturday 11th March 2023 from 10am to 2pm and we would be delighted if your company would participate in this annual event.

The venue offers extensive space to accommodate businesses and also to incorporate any interactive activities and demonstrations they wish to bring along. Interactive activities have proved popular in our previous events – those seeking employment or identifying future career options get a real understanding of how a business functions and the skills required to be part of that workforce.

Some examples of interactive activities and demonstrations provided by companies have included:

*             Simulators

*             Hair and beauty, cookery, woodwork and engineering demonstrations / models

*             Police Riot Gear

*             Virtual Reality Goggles

If you are interested in participating in this event, I would appreciate if you could respond to me by email or telephone 01847 890076 by Friday 27th January 2023.

Should your company wish to include any interactive activities or demonstrations on the day, this would be very welcome and once confirmed, I can ensure adequate space is available for your display.

I look forward to hearing from you. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards
