The Fife Free Press Group has launched a major initiative to help Fifers find work.

It’s part of our ‘ Summer Of Love’ campaign designed to reinvigorate our local economy and support business - and those seeking work.

Using our fast growing website Jobstoday - part of our websitew - we have joined forces with our sister titles across the UK to open a National Virtual Careers Fair, connecting talented job seekers to local and national employers.

It runs for the next 12 days until July 5.

The fair is an online platform where job seekers can browse top companies from across the UK, connect in a real time environment and apply for advertised vacancies; all for FREE and from the comfort of their computers.

With over 40 top employers showcasing job offers, this latest tool is a natural progression in finding the best talent; great businesses attending include Nationwide, Virgin Media, Centrica, B&Q and LV.

The FFP Group - which includes the Fife Free Press, East Fife Mail, Glenrothes Gazette, Fife Herald and St Andrews Citizen - has always been at the heart of its community, committed to helping local people secure jobs through our range of employment tools including the traditional ‘Sits Vac’ in-paper and on-line jobs advertisements.

Now we’re extending our offer online.

“The fair revolutionises the whole process, giving job seekers a huge opportunity to find the right career move for them,” said Allan Crow, central Fife editor of the Fife group, said.

“We are part of Johnston Press, we publish 243 newspapers and 223 local websites, complemented by mobile sites and a growing portfolio of apps, Our websites reach over 10 million visitors per month. That’s a lot of people!

“By joining forces these titles and digital platforms are a tremendous force for good - especially in boosting the economy by bringing job seekers and employers together.”
