I'm going to take the plunge and be the first to post in this thread. Ive read the introduction.

   What I am going to say, I didnt know where to put it. I thought maybe in the cafe chat thread.

  However. I am absolutely fed up with the high winds that have gone on for week after week all Aug Sept (and maybe July).  But ---- NOW THEY HAVE GONE.   But, so have all my potential customers.

 They have all gone home to Stoke etc

  So, the weather forecast is great for this coming weekend.  I am fed up of being by myself. So, I would like to invite everyone who reads this forum, and all their friends, to come up to the Great Orme Family Golf and play away absolutely free of an charge in any shape or form.

 Just say "I read this on the three towns forum" and off you go.

 I might as well be up here, have a nice crowd of people enjoying themselves and have an empty till. Rather than being up here by myself and having an empty till.

   Hoping to see a few of you.    Mike

I have just developed a Facebook group called "Jobs offered in Llandudno, LLandudno Junction, Conwy and Colwyn Bay", and now have almost 200 members. It is a site to spread the word about any job vacancies of whatever type in the area, as people find it very hard to find work at present - so many jobs are gone before they see them, yet are still advertised. It would appear that the obvious ones are those that people spot in shop/office windows, and are then spread by word of mouth. That's where I thought that members of this forum and my members could gain a mutual benefit. Some businesses have problems getting staff, and particularly with the tourist season approaching, there are people on my site desperately looking for work. You would be very welcome to join the group - alternatively please post any vacancies on here and I will copy them across for members to contact you in whichever manner you feel appropriate. This will not cost you anything of course, and you will have access to a good selection of potential staff.

I heard over the weekend that 4 million people a month are changing their jobs in the USA, due to lockdowns and various other factors relating to Covid, and we have seen the effects here, truck drivers etc, so I thought it a good idea to use the Forum to advise of any potential opportunities out there.

North Wales recruiters started the year on a high with new partnerships and expansion plans.

The team at Colwyn Bay and Bangor-based Supertemps have been inundated with clients seeking employees in multiple industries over the winter months.

Managing Director Sarah Ellwood says demand is increasing for staff in sectors including IT, hospitality, retail, and manufacturing, but warned bosses to move fast for fear of losing out on their ideal applicant.

“The market has been candidate-driven for quite some time but since the onset of the pandemic it has reached new levels,” said Sarah.

Llinos Gutierrez-Jones, Head of Human Resources for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, said: “We have a number of support staff vacancies being advertised currently, and Supertemps are playing a key role in helping us recruit the right people for these rewarding roles.”

LAST week, the digital marketing company Yell Business published a report that revealed Llandudno is the start-up capital of the United Kingdom.

During 2021, more businesses formed in the town per capita than anywhere else throughout the UK.

Highlighting the report during a debate in Parliament on Tuesday (February 22), Aberconwy MP Robin Millar said:

“Last September, Llandudno in Aberconwy was identified as having the fastest economic recovery in the UK and, last week, an analysis of Companies House filings identified it as the start-up capital of the UK.

“I pay tribute to the entrepreneurs and businesses for making that happen.

“Will my honourable friend the minister join me in Llandudno with some of those entrepreneurs to see how we can nurture those green shoots, secure the growth and turn Llandudno into a growth and enterprise hub for North Wales?”

George Freeman MP, the UK Government minister for science, research and innovation, responded by saying: “With pleasure.

A firm has funding to offer free trucker training worth thousands of pounds to people in North Wales in a bid to help relieve the shortage in the sector.
The lack of qualified HGV and LGV drivers in the UK was highlighted before Christmas with deliveries of fuel and food hit.

This is now out of the headlines but the Road Haulage Association (RHA) has warned of a shortage of around 100,000 drivers and said the issue has not improved.

It comes as more drivers leave the industry due to retirement and other factors than are joining as well as European drivers leaving the UK after Brexit.

But training is expensive with people having to fork out thousands of pounds to get qualified.
Now Gatewen Training Services, based in Llay near Wrexham, is offering to train people up for free after getting funding from Welsh Government aimed at tackling the crisis. The training would usually cost up to £3,700.

Candidates must live in Wales, and;
Be earning less than £29,500 per annum
The funding is available to prepare either new drivers for the Cat C (Rigid Vehicle) test or experienced drivers for the Cat C+E (Articulated Vehicle) test.

There is no lower or upper age limit but people need to sign up required by the end of March, although training can be after that date.
A spokesman said: "The UK’s lorry driver shortage that received a lot of publicity prior to Christmas has not visibly got any better.

"The average age of a driver in the UK is 55 with less than 1% being under the age of 25.

"Approximately 2,000 drivers are leaving the industry every week, often due to retirement, with only 1,000 new recruits joining over the same period.

Gatewen have recently been awarded the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award and also in a drive to offer mental health help and support to local men, they have set up and sponsor a men’s mental health charity https://www.pwrpas.com/. (https://www.pwrpas.com/.)

It operates as a hub with its primary aims being to raise awareness of the mental health challenges faced by men, engage with men and encourage conversation, and to signpost men to appropriate support.       ref DP

Update on above....

Phone 'ringing off the wall' at trucker training firm offering free HGV driver courses to people in Wales
Gatewen Training Services, based in Llay near Wrexham, has been astonished at the huge interest in the training

Since then they have had more than 150 calls from people in Wales interested in taking up the offer and they are now trying to process these enquiries.

A spokesman for Gatewen said “The response has been way above expectations and as a result we will not be able to process any further enquiries until further notice.

A CONSTRUCTION course is building new careers in North Wales to help meet demand in the sector.  ref pioneer

Conwy Employment Hub - which oversees Communities for Work, PaCE and Communities for Work Plus – has been delivering jobs and skills opportunities in partnership with social housing enterprise Procure Plus and Mochdre-based RELM Construction.

Among those to have benefited is Tom Whitworth, who secured a role with RELM Construction after impressing on a placement.

This was part of a two-week practical and classroom-based course which covered themes such as manual handling, environmental awareness, health and safety, how to use power tools and equipment safely, and working at height.

Tom, 30, from Llandudno, said: “I had previously worked in catering but wanted to try a new career and discovered this course with Conwy Employment Hub.

As part of the Plan for Jobs, the new temporary Jobcentre in Bayview Shopping Centre, Colwyn Bay officially opened, giving jobseekers more access to support and the latest opportunities.

Work coaches at the new site in Colwyn Bay will join thousands of colleagues up and down the country at the forefront of the UK Government’s drive to get 500,000 people currently out of work into jobs by the end of the summer as part of the ‘Way to Work’ campaign.

The Jobcentre has 16 work coaches, some of whom joined the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) as part of the successful recruitment drive to hire 13,500 new work coaches across the country.

Each new work coach will help people looking for employment in Colwyn Bay and other nearby areas, with one-on-one tailored support to find their next role.

“Every customer benefits from having a dedicated work coach.
“They know the local jobs market and work with local businesses to match jobseekers to the latest opportunities.

“This new Jobcentre, alongside our current office in Prince’s Park, will significantly increase our capacity to deliver for our local Universal Credit customers.

“This fantastic new Jobcentre will help us to bring local jobseekers, employers and our key delivery partners together.”  ref pioneer

A new recruitment drive is set to be launched later this month to sign up full-time firefighters in North Wales.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service has announced registration for online applications will open at noon on Friday, April 22 and close at midday on Tuesday, April 26.

The region's fire service originally intended to appoint people to the roles in September last year.

However, the plans were placed on hold, which the area's chief fire officer blamed on having "limited resources to recruit and train firefighters".

Ahead of the latest recruitment window, the service's head of operations Anthony Jones said it was looking to attract applicants from a variety of backgrounds.

He said: “Right now, we’re preparing to launch a new recruitment drive for full-time firefighters - and this recruitment window will be open for online registrations over a period of five days.

“We’re looking for people to join our team. We believe there is no such thing as a typical firefighter and applications from all backgrounds are encouraged.

Anyone who requires additional information is advised to visit the service's social media pages or its website.

“We provide our new recruits with a comprehensive training package with a nationally-recognised qualification at the end of it to help them make the most of this opportunity to work in this exciting sector – all that has helped me and many others succeed at Hays.”

The closing date is April 11, after which all candidates will have a telephone interview.

BUSINESSES, educators and training organisations can sign up to a free exhibition at one of the country’s premier event venues.

Eirias Events Centre in Colwyn Bay will host the inaugural Conwy Job Expo on Thursday May 12 from 2pm-7pm.

Organised by Conwy Employment Hub – which oversees Communities for Work, PaCE and Communities for Work Plus – in partnership with Working Wales, which is delivered by Careers Wales, the DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) and Conwy Business Support team, the Expo aims to bring multiple sectors under one roof to promote recruitment opportunities across the region.

Prospective job candidates, learners and apprentices will have the opportunity to meet with dozens of employers from a wide range of industries and take the next step towards their future careers.

Libby Duo, Strategic Manager for Conwy Employment Service, said they have already received a positive response and hope to see a great turnout on the day.

“This is a chance to shine a light on the many jobs which are currently being advertised in Conwy and the surrounding area,” she added.

“Recruitment is a major issue nationwide – particularly in hospitality, tourism, and IT – so we want employers to use this event to showcase their offering and find candidates who can help them build back from the pandemic.

“For those wanting to explore a new direction or professional and personal development there will be colleges, business support teams and training providers on-site to discuss your options, share information and provide guidance.

“If you are looking for a job, recruiting to your organisation or welcoming prospective learners for the next academic year, this is going to be a crucial event, a one-stop shop for employability and education – we hope to see you there.”

The Eirias facility will be divided into sections for exhibitors, education and training, demonstrations, and workshops, covering themes from interview techniques to CV writing.

Cera Conwy, Colwyn Bay
28 Wynnstay Road,
 Colwyn Bay01492 463043

Cera, the digital-first healthcare-at-home provider and one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies, is recruiting 50 care assistant positions in Colwyn Bay.

As part of the recruitment drive, the company is holding a recruitment event on April 28th from 10am-2pm for anyone considering applying for a role to drop in to chat to the team.

Cera is a technology-enabled home care provider, with a team of thousands of carers and nurses delivering more than 40,000 in-person visits to patients homes every day on behalf of over 100 Local Authorities and NHS CCGs. The company’s pioneering technology removes the burden of manual pen and paper processes by implementing innovative technology and machine learning capabilities, in turn giving carers more time to do what they do best; care.

If you are a student about to graduate, an experienced worker considering a career change or employed worker looking to supplement your current income, Cera’s technology can recruit, train, certify and deploy new professional carers in a matter of days.

Felix Wetzel, Director of Carer Acquisition at Cera, commented: “Over the past two years, the majority of us have experienced what it’s like to care for people outside of our families – from staying at home to protect the most vulnerable to checking in on an elderly neighbour or dropping off food for a friend in isolation. The feeling of caring and making a difference to the lives of others is incomparable. It doesn’t matter what stage of your career you’re at, if you’re reliable, empathetic and friendly, it’s time to consider joining the caring profession.”

Post by: SteveH on June 21, 2022, 10:00:41 AM
The Welsh Government will support 1,200 young people to start their own businesses as part of plans to foster a new culture of entrepreneurship in Wales.

Economy Minister, Vaughan Gething announced today that the Government will deliver ?5 million over the next three years to deliver on the self-employment aspect of the ambitious Young Person?s Guarantee.

The Minister said supporting young entrepreneurs will form a vital part of making Wales a place where more young people feel confident in planning their future.

The Welsh Government is determined that there will be no lost generation in Wales as a result of the Covid pandemic. The Young Person?s Guarantee will provide everyone under 25 in Wales with the offer of work, education, training, or self-employment.

The investment is included in the ?20.9m a year commitment to extend the hugely successful Business Wales service beyond the end of EU funding in 2023.

Mr Gething said: ?Encouraging young adults to stay in Wales by building their careers and launching their own businesses here will be instrumental as we re-design our economy post-coronavirus.

?Our young people hold the key to Wales? future success. Their talents, skills and creativity are essential to ensuring our economic success. I am determined we do all we can as a government to help deliver the long-term economic benefits our young people deserve for them all to fulfil their potential."

Specialist support will be provided through three key ways.

A new Young Person?s Start Up Grant of up to ?2,000 per business, pre and post start up support for one year and help during Summer Start-Up Week 2022, a collaboration by Further and Higher Education institutions in partnership with Big Ideas Wales.

A NORTH Wales community interest group is helping people of all ages in part-time and temporary work progress their careers through free one-to-one career coaching.

RCS, which provides wellbeing support for individuals and businesses across North and West Wales, launched its tailored service to help broaden job opportunities for individuals looking to move to full-time or permanent positions.

The programme can be accessed as part of RCS? In Work Support Service which operates across Denbighshire, Conwy, Gwynedd, Anglesey, Carmarthenshire, and Ceredigion.

The scheme, which consists of four one-to-one professional coaching sessions, uses an evidence-based appreciative approach, meaning participants can map out their goals based on success and opportunities rather than focusing on negatives.

Initially launched as a pilot project, the 12-week programme has now been ramped up to include an online hub of resources to support learning outside of the monthly meet ups.

Participants are guided by Marian Rosefield, who has more than two decades of experience in professional coaching, with sessions tailored to best suit individual learning styles and help better understand career aspirations.
