Employment wellbeing event to be held in Rhyl

An event focused on wellbeing for people needing support in work, those looking for a career change or those in need of a job, is to be held at Rhyl Library on the 24th of November.

This free event has been organised to link residents with service providers, allowing access to relevant support and valuable information focused on employment.

There will be 20 stands in attendance, offering a mix of support including career support, healthcare and social services. The event will encompass the whole of the top floor in Rhyl library, and will run from 11.30am – 1.30pm.

The event will enable attendees to engage with a range of local and regional employers as well as community-based organisations. These stalls will be providing information on jobs, wellness and wellbeing, advice regarding pensions and finance, self-employment, volunteering and other activities, educational and training opportunities available to those who are employed or looking for work.
