HUNDREDS of jobs in and around Weston will be on offer at a recruitment fair later this month.

The event, organised by Weston MP John Penrose, will see some of the biggest regional and national employers advertising vacancies they want to fill.

More than 30 firms will be represented from a variety of sectors including hoteliers Doubletree by Hilton at Cadbury House and Premier Inn.

Other companies involved include The Grand Pier, Thatchers Cider, Bakers Dolphin, Sainsbury’s, EDF Energy, Lidl, and fast food giants McDonald’s.

The free event will be open to everyone and will give jobseekers the chance to meet employers face-to-face.

Some companies will conduct interviews on the day and therefore potential applicants are recommended to dress smartly and bring CVs with them.

Job hunters will also be able to get career and interview advice from organisations such as the National Careers Service and Jobcentre Plus as well as learn about volunteering opportunities, apprenticeships and a whole host of courses.
