IF you are looking for a change in your career direction then the #MyFuture training and recruitment event being held later this month is an event you must attend.

The Chronicle has teamed up with the Barnsley 2030 campaign and some of the borough’s leading employers to offer job seekers the chance to learn more about the opportunities on offer.

More than 20 employers and training providers will have a presence, making it the largest event of its type staged in several years.

Barnsley Central MP, Dan Jarvis, will perform the official opening and deliver a keynote address to exhibitors and delegates.
