Bolton's Learning and Employment Fair officially kicked off in Victoria Square.

Stalls are lining the streets and people are on hand to offer help with CVs, improve digital skills and discuss job options.

The jobs fair, which is particularly useful for young people, will also run tomorrow 10am - 4pm.

There are employment opportunities available at the fair, including at transport operator Diamond Bus North West.

The Training Manager for Diamond Bus North West, Micheala Bracegirdle, said: "This is primarily an opportunity for 18-24 year olds via the Kickstart Scheme.

Applicants need to have had their licence for 12 months, have no more than six points on their license and be on universal credit. But we are also taking job applications for over 24s."

Qube learning are also on the lookout for school or college leavers who want to gain experience in their desired job sector.

The company allocates 16-24 year olds an unpaid placement in a sector they are interested in as a way of boosting their chances of securing a job.

A member of the team at Qube learning said: "The traineeship enhances your chances of securing an apprenticeship or another job. The placements are usually 8 weeks long and there's a lot of hands-on experience. It is an opportunity to sample the sector you dream of working in."

The Bolton Library and Museum Services are also encouraging people to sign up to the amazing services that are available at the library.

The library has several free online resources for jobseekers, including Complete Business Reference Advisor (COBRA), which includes information about setting up a business.

Staff from Bolton Library said: "There is a range of services available for people aged 1-100. From pre-toddler tales group to popular knitting groups, there is something for everyone at the library."
