WESTON-SUPER-MARE Jobs Fair will return for a tenth time later this year.

The annual jobs fair, organised by local MP John Penrose, unites local and national employers with residents local to Weston who are looking for work.

This year's fair will host 40 employers, with hundreds of job vacancies to fill.

Businesses in attendance and with jobs to offer include: Brandon Trust, Smart Systems, Priory Trust, Pier Health, Weston Hospital, Avon & Somerset Police, EDF Energy, Bristol Airport, Weston College, North Somerset Council, Abatec, and many more.

Job hunters will also be able to attain interview advice and learn about courses and apprenticeships on offer at Weston College.

John Penrose MP said: “It's hard to believe it's been a decade since we held the first Weston Jobs Fair!

"I'm very proud of it, because during those 10 years, we've had great feedback from local people and companies who attended saying they've found a new job they really love or from companies who say they found someone who turned out to be a long-term, valued member of their team.

"This year, we've had organisations from many sectors reach out and ask when the next event would be.

"It's clear that there's plenty of work available around Weston, whether you're currently between jobs or in work and ready for a change.

"As always, the goal with this year's Jobs Fair is to match as many local people as possible with rewarding jobs and provide organisations access to talented local people."

The event will take place at the Winter Gardens on Thursday November 2, from 10am until 2pm.

It's free to attend with no pre-event registration required.
