the 4th Selby Jobs Fair, This is the newspaper column I did on the day. – Selby Fairs Fair is being held in the Selby College sports hall for most of the day. LRB Trophies has again agreed to volunteer my time to give out free helpful advice to the 800+ job seekers who will be attending during the day. I have done this at the previous fairs to help people with CV issues or seeking employment. This time last year I offered to look at over 30 different CV’s. In the weeks that followed, I wrote to all the people who handed them in giving tips and guidance. Each CV had something that could be changed or added. The aim is to get that CV to the top of the pile. I’m going to do the same this year and offer basic tips, tweaks and improvements. Some I can spot within a few seconds, such as having a phone number for the recruitment manager to ring, others might be nearly perfect and don’t need much help. The Fair is once again organised by my LBA award business mentor, Nigel Adams MP. He and his team are working with the job centre and also the team at Selby College. Over 40 businesses are working together in the same room at the same time. Job seekers are able to talk to as many people as possible in the same day. This year over 500 jobs are available it will be great to hear of some good news stories from successful people in the future. Last year we had a person offered an interview within ten minutes of arriving and someone else starting their new job the very next day. Companies involved at last years event included Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Heineken, Drax Power and Shepherd Construction.Trophy Blog #112 – Recently we attended

Bernadette Leggett can be found via google and facebook. Blog #47 – Last week I set up a stand at the Selby Jobs Fair held in the Selby College sports hall. I volunteered to give out free helpful advice to the 800+ job seekers who attended. At one stage I thought I would loose my voice as so many people had different issues or stories to tell about their experiences at seeking employment. During the day I offered to look at twenty three different CV’s. By the time you read this column I will have hopefully written to all the people who handed them in. I’m going to offer them some tips, tweaks and improvements. Some I spotted within a few seconds, others might be nearly perfect and don’t need much help. The Fair was organised by my LBA award business mentor, Nigel Adams MP. He and his team worked with the job centre and they pulled out all the stops to get it working. It was great to see over 40 businesses working together in the same room at the same time. It made it easy for Job seekers to talk to as many people as possible in the same day. With over 500 jobs available it will be great to hear of some good news stories in the future. If I hear any myself, I will let you all know in future columns. Some big nation wide retailers such as McDonald’s and Marks & Spenser’s worked along side the likes of LRB Trophies. We also had Selby based IceTec Ltd offering their training courses to help gain qualifications. Blog #25 ~ Lending an Helping Hand. Recently I helped to start a 1800 mile journey for 46 bikes that will be used by Children at an Orphanage in Bulgaria. These bikes we’re purchased, donated, serviced and fixed by a unemployed 50 year old Selby man (who wishes to remain nameless). I spotted an appeal by the charity to help complete their logistical nightmare. The charity had already done the hard work by gaining freight space on a Bulgarian lorry that was due to leave Bradford. All that was needed was a van and a driver to get them from Selby to Bradford. I spoke to my business partner, and we agreed that LRB Trophies would cover the hire van cost, diesel and my time as the driver. The couple who run the charity are based in Peterborough, but they have family and friends based in Selby. The couple regularly visit the Dimcho Debelianov Orphanage in Silstra based in North East Bulgaria and have sorted out a smaller freight company to meet the lorry in the capital city of Sofia. This is something that we all should do once in a while, spare a few hours to help someone. You don’t have to spend money on hiring a van. But you can do your good deed for the day. I’m sure there is a local charity or children’s club near by crying out for that little bit of help. Business owners are use to making quick decisions and spending money to get the job done. For more information on the Orphanage or to make a donation please visit: www.bulgariaorphanagesillistra.com – LRB Trophies provided fantastic pre purchase advice on what best suited our needs and the delivery process was fast and efficient and we were thrilled with the trophies! – Mark Tipping
