BROMSGROVE residents looking for a new job or a career change can go to a special event being held next month.
MP Sajid Javid’s Jobs Fair will have hundreds of job and apprenticeship opportunities on offer from more than 40 employers when it takes place between 10am and 3pm on February 5 at the JobCentre Plus, in the new Bromsgrove Hub, the former Parkside Middle School.
The event, which is once again supported by The Bromsgrove Standard, is back popular demand after a very successful first fair in the town last year.
Among the employers at the Jobs Fair will be Aldi, HSBC, Harris Brush, Tesco, Curo Chartered Accountants, Barrie Beard Ltd, GKN, Club Developments, Care Force Ltd, Oakland International, Jaguar Land Rover, HME Technology, Gym Shark, BT, Spencers Bromsgrove Ltd, SwiftACI, The National Trust, the NHS, the Army, the RAF, National Express, Rimilia, Cook & Associates and more.
Last year’s Jobs Fair was the biggest event of its kind to have been held in Bromsgrove and this year’s is going to be even bigger.
As well as the vacancies, the National Careers Service will also be providing a CV Clinic based on the Parkside site in the town’s new library.
Mr Javid said: “I want to support all of my constituents looking for a job – whether it be their first step on the ladder or a mid-career change.
“The fair also helps back our local businesses with home-grown talent.
“Last year was a great success and I was moved to hear from those who secured jobs.
“This year we have even more employers attending, which means even more opportunities for advice, applications and employment.”
Standard editor Tristan Harris added: “It is fantastic to be supporting such a positive event, especially after the success of last year’s.
“The way people responded to the fair and the feedback afterwards was amazing and we are expecting and hoping for a similar response this year.
“It’s a wonderful way for those looking for jobs or a career change to start the new year.”
