Media Release: Jobs boost in store for Glasgow as St. Enoch Centre announces annual recruitment fair

THE St. Enoch Working Recruitment Fair will once again bring hundreds of new retail jobs to Glasgow when it takes place on 15th, 16th and 17th September.

Seasonal and permanent job opportunities with some of St. Enoch’s most popular retailers, including Debenhams, Hamleys, ModelZone, Fossil, Game, Swatch and BHS, will be up for grabs, and members of the public are being invited to attend.

St. Enoch Working provides jobseekers with access to new work and training opportunities in Glasgow whilst assisting many of the city’s employers to find ideal candidates to fill their vacancies.

Last year’s recruitment fair attracted over 3,000 jobseekers, with candidates from across the city attending and registering their interest.

This year’s event is expected to be even more successful with a range of employment opportunities on offer.

The fair will be located outside BHS on the first floor of St. Enoch Centre, from 12 noon to 7pm on Thursday 15th September and 11am – 4pm on Friday 16th September.

A range of employers will host stands to provide information about vacancies and application forms.

Although employers won’t be in attendance on Saturday 17th September, those who cannot attend on Thursday and Friday may still access information on vacancies at the St. Enoch Working office on the first floor between 11am – 2pm.

Job hunters who are unable to attend the fair can also register online at, or visit the St. Enoch Working unit on the first floor of the mall between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday for information on all vacancies, before and after the event.

Launched in 2009, St. Enoch Working is a partnership project founded by St. Enoch Centre and run in partnership with Glasgow’s Regeneration Agency, Glasgow Works, Jobcentre Plus, and Skills Development Scotland.

St Enoch Working specialises in providing employability support to the people of Glasgow throughout the year.

Susan Nicol, general manager of St. Enoch Centre, said: “The St. Enoch Working initiative continues to bring new work and training opportunities to the people of Glasgow, which is of great importance in our current economic climate.

“With over 2,500 people working in the Centre, St. Enoch is a major employer in the city, and through our St. Enoch Working initiative we remain committed to providing support for the people of Glasgow.

“We hope that this year even more of Glasgow’s job hunters come along to the fair in order to take full advantage of the skills and employment opportunities that the St. Enoch Working initiative provides.”

Councillor Pat Chalmers, Chair of Glasgow’s Regeneration Agency added, ‘The St. Enoch Working project is an excellent example of partnership working in the city.

“It brings together the expertise of key public agencies with those of the private sector to effectively link jobseekers with jobs. Organised as part of our remit  to create opportunities and provide support to the people of Glasgow, this ever-popular event is now in its third year.

“With a wide variety of employers already confirmed, I anticipate this event to be our most popular yet and GRA staff will be on hand throughout to offer you a warm welcome and to happily answer any questions you may have.”
