Your city, your jobs recruitment fair

If you live in Bristol or the surrounding area and looking to get your foot in the door of some great organisations do come along to the 'Your city, your jobs' recruitment fair on Thursday 13 June 2019, Trinity Centre, Trinity Road, Bristol BS2 0NW from 4pm-7.30pm.

Improving diversity and inclusion in employment in Bristol organisations is part of Bristol City Council’s Race & Equality Manifesto which Second Step is signed up to alongside leaders from Bristol University, University of the West of England (UWE), Avon and Somerset Police, the Avon Fire and Rescue Service, Bristol Waste and many more. Our aim is to attract and retain a diverse workforce as we believe this strengthens and enriches our organisations. We encourage people of Black, Asian and minority and ethnic origin to attend.

There will be workshops on interview, application and CV writing techniques and an opportunity to find out what jobs are available.

Supporting equality and diversity

We celebrate diversity and value equal opportunity, and we believe the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. We want to build a team which represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, and we recruit on the basis of merit and potential. We also welcome applications from people who have personal experience of using mental health services.

We are a Mindful Employer and a Time to Change champion which means we have access to a wealth information and support for staff who experience stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health problems.

Casual vacancies

From time to time we recruit casual staff and bank staff to cover illness, long-term absence and holidays. To enquire about our casual roles, please email jobs@second-step.co.uk 


We will ensure your personal data is kept confidential and held securely. Please read our recruitment privacy notice to find out what to expect when you apply for one of our roles.
