York Jobcentre is working with York City Council on the event at the York Railway Institute on Queen Street.
Participating employers include Tesco, M&S, The Grand and Hiscox.
There will also be many providers such as the National Careers Service, the Family Information Service and Citizens Advice.
Job centers promise a full service, as customers with health issues can access expert support through a disability employment advisor.
Jenny Langstaff, deputy partnership manager for York, said: “Unlocking the skills and abilities of jobseekers improves their employment prospects and helps deliver the Government’s priority of economic growth.”
“The key to this is the individual, professional support from our team of work coaches, who ensure that everyone gets the help they need, regardless of whether they are just leaving training, are 50 plus or suffer from a health impairment. This crucial support enables job seekers to achieve their full potential.
“Identifying barriers to entry and progression into the world of work is a key aspect of the work coach role, so people can make the most of the help available. Importantly, job-seeking parents using Universal Credit can now receive additional financial support through increased childcare contributions.”
“In York, the number of people receiving unemployment benefits has fallen by 8% since last year and those over 50 have fallen by 17%. Locally, we work hard to help employers fill their vacancies and support jobseekers in finding work. ”
Various events were organized.
These include the 50+ Job Club, which starts on Thursday September 14th and runs for six weeks, an employer recruitment and retention event on October 5th and the October Christmas and Student Job Fair on October 17th.
