More jobseekers than ever flocked to Weston College on Tuesday to meet employers and learn about volunteering and apprenticeship opportunities in North Somerset.

Mr Penrose told the Mercury: “The jobs fair was better than ever. We had more firms and organisations, and more jobseekers than ever too.

“The feedback from hirers and jobseekers was the best we’ve ever seen.

“Our sponsors were brilliant. Thanks to Bristol Airport, Weston College, McDonald’s, Brandon Trust and, of course, the Mercury.
