WESTON'S MP John Penrose is bringing job seekers and employers together next month in what is thought could be the biggest Jobs Fair in the town for years.

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

No pre-event registration is required.

Mr Penrose said: "We believe this year's event could be the biggest for years, and there's going to be a good variety of jobs available. So there should be something to suit everyone, whether they're currently out of work and looking for that all-important first job or considering a mid-career change in direction."

Here are some of the employers who will be at the event:

  • Smart Systems;
  • North Somerset Environment Company;

  • Tricel;
  • North Somerset Council;
  • Weston Hospital;
  • Avon and Somerset Police;
