The largest careers fair in the entire South Yorkshire region, Opportunities Doncaster Live connects hundreds of businesses up with learners from across the borough.
As the name suggests, it’s a chance to see what job prospects are available to residents (from school-age through to adults) on their doorstep right here in Doncaster, and to really broaden their minds when it comes to thinking about what they want to do for a career.
Taking the form of an exhibition — in which employers can book interactive stands to showcase their various career pathways to the prospective workforce of the future — OD Live strives to represent all different sectors. Everything from the hospitality industry to leisure & tourism, finance, the arts, technology, engineering and manufacturing is represented here, meaning that no one gets left out.
For 2024, we are pleased to announce that we will be expanding the scope of the careers fair by introducing a dedicated evening slot for adult learners to come along and meet with businesses.
The annual flagship event gives local employers the chance to meet over 4,000 learners and inspire them about the career pathways available across the borough.
The day-long event offers a friendly, interactive environment for exhibitors to engage with learners, offer careers guidance and inspire their future workforce.
Learners will have the opportunity to interact with local businesses and ask questions that will give them a sense of what the world of work is really like.
