Trafford Pledge Events

Following the success of the Trafford Jobs Fair and Trafford Careers Fair held at Hotel Football back in 2017, we will be hosting similar events in 2018,



Trafford putting Employers at the heart of the GM Employment & Skills System

We are excited to announce that Trafford Council is hosting an event in partnership with GMCA to gather the views and insights of local employers about recruitment and skills priorities.

The GM Mayor, Andy Burnham, will be one of the key note speakers setting the scene about his ambition for the GM Employer Charter.

Councillor Sean Anstee, Leader of Trafford Council and GM Skills and Employment Lead will also set the scene for the employment and skills priorities for the year ahead.

We need you as local businesses to help us stimulate change by telling us what holds back your organisation and what skills and recruitment support you need to achieve sustainable growth.

It is important that employers shape and influence the employment, skills and education system needed for the local economy.
