UPDATE: Restrictions on emails have been lifted

We now have sufficient confidence our systems and servers have not been affected by the recent cyber attack on our ICT provider, Sopra Steria, that we have lifted the block on external emails.

As you would expect, there are a large number of emails that have been quarantine but work is well under way to release them and should be completed by the end of tomorrow (Friday).

Thank you for your patience and support whilst we have worked to safely resolve the situation.

Gloucestershire libraries help job seekers in more ways than one


Gloucester Library is holding a job fair on Thursday 21st April, and is inviting all job seekers to come along to speak to organisations and potentially find a new career.

There will be local volunteer groups, apprenticeship companies, employers and recruitment agencies at the event and a variety of job types.

The fair will take place between 2pm - 4pm and the fair is free for everyone, with no need to book in advance.

In addition to the fair, libraries across Gloucestershire can play a vital part in finding employment opportunities by providing public network computers, the virtual reference library and assistance with job applications and CV's through their computer buddy volunteers.

Jane Everiss, head of Gloucestershire Libraries, said: "The library service has always assisted people looking for work and we are really keen to help people find or get into employment.

"The job fair on Thursday at Gloucester Library will be a fantastic chance for job seekers to come along and find out about different organisations, and potentially find a new career."
