Weston MP John Penrose is promising this month’s Weston Jobs Fair will be the ‘best one yet’, with a ‘bigger and broader range of employers than ever before’.

The freshly-revamped Winter Gardens, in Royal Parade, will host the jobs fair on September 27 from 10.30am-2.30pm.

Almost 50 employers or career advisors have signed up for the jobs fair, with a huge range of opportunities available.

The likes of Avon and Somerset Constabulary, Hinkley Point C and Elysium Healthcare will be at the exhibition.

Cineworld Cinemas and Rock Up indoor rock climbing – occupiers the almost-finished Dolphin Square leisure complex – will also be showcasing their vacancies.

And jobseekers in need of guidance before taking the next step on their career ladder can utilise support from a number of expert advisors – including Jobs Centre Plus and the National Career Service.

The event, which is held twice a year and supported by the Mercury, is organised by Mr Penrose who believes there will be something for everyone.

He said: “This will be the biggest Weston Jobs Fair yet, but also the best.

“There’s a bigger, broader range of employers looking for staff than ever before; from retail to culinary to care to construction to admin to tourism to the armed forces.”

Mr Penrose believes the green shoots of regeneration are appearing in the town, and more career opportunities are being unearthed for Westonians.

He added: “It shows how many firms are investing in Weston’s economic rebirth so, whether you want to work in the new Dolphin Square complex or Hinkley Point C, there will be a job to suit you.”

The last jobs fair in March set a new attendance record, and the MP hopes the long list of employers can help improve on that number.

Melanie Allen, ward manager for Elysium, is excited to meet jobseekers at the fair.

She told the Mercury: “We feel the Weston Jobs Fair is a good platform to reach local people and to give them the opportunity to speak with staff to make the first step in joining a well-established environment.”
