It’s encouraging to see Birmingham and the wider West Midlands region going through some exciting developments over the next couple of years, despite the country’s financial turmoil.
Edgbaston Cricket Ground is having its very own £30 million facelift due to be completed by July next year, hoping to attract an increased number of visitors and business that could potentially lead to more jobs for local people.
In addition, the NEC Group provides an array of entertainment venues across the region that attracts millions of visitors every year. The newly developed LG Arena has seen a huge amount of success and there are plans in the pipeline to revamp the National Indoor Arena, which is sure to draw in the crowds. Alongside this, there are proposals in place for Resort World @ The NEC – an exciting entertainment complex that will feature a casino, spa, restaurants and four-star hotel, set to create more than 1,000 jobs.
Major developments like these could help to generate a wealth of job opportunities for those living in the West Midlands and show other businesses throughout the region that investment is crucial to surviving the economic downturn. Grad Central has always encouraged this message and since launching over a year ago, we have continued to support businesses looking to put their money to good use when searching for fresh talent.
One way we are playing our part to ensure jobs are readily available throughout the region is with our next Careers Open Day on Wednesday 25 August, which will be held from 8am till 6pm at the Jurys Inn Hotel on Broad Street in Birmingham City Centre.
We already have over 300 graduates signed up to attend this event and we’re welcoming businesses to come along who may want to see what the West Midlands has to offer in terms of potential employees. They can expect a wide array of candidates available to suit their specific requirements, as well as a first-class service from our team of dedicated recruitment specialists throughout the whole process.
