A SKILLS show and Jobs Fair will take place at the Hollymoor Community Centre between 10am and 3pm on Sunday, September 26.

The event which everyone is welcome to attend will be hosted by Frankley councillor Simon Morrall, Northfield MP Gary Sambrook and Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street.

As the region bounces back from the pandemic, the fair is aimed at showcasing to people the thousands of opportunities on offer across Birmingham.

They include Automotive, Art and Design, Athletics, Childcare, Construction, Business, Beauty Therapy, Fashion, Photography, Make Up, Hospitality, Hairdressing, Food, Science, Sport, Football, Engineering, Electrics, Game Development, IT, Music, Film Production, Media, Journal- ism, Dance, Psychology, Police, Fire, Paramedics, Nursing, Teaching and much more.

It is free to both those browsing opportunities and for skills providers and employers to exhibit at.

Coun Morrall said he was very excited to bring another Skills Show and Jobs Fair to Frankley as Covid prevented one happening last year.

“I am always banging on at the city council about the need to market the opportunities in our great city better and local skills shows are a great way to do this.

“Just seeing young people travel to the last one at the Balaam Wood Academy in 2019 – despite it being a cold snowy Sunday – re-ignited what I’ve been saying for years.

“There are people living on estates with ambition and talents we simply aren’t tapping into and the big challenge is reaching more people like this to let them know they really can succeed in life, regardless of their circumstances or background.”
