Call for exhibitors for the 2017 West Berkshire Work and Careers Fair

29 August 2017, Newbury, Berkshire – West Berkshire Skills and Enterprise Partnership invites local businesses and organisations to take part in this year’s West Berkshire Work and Careers Fair taking place on Wednesday 11 October, from 1-6pm, at Newbury College’s Monks Lane Campus.   Following the success of the event in 2016, which attracted over 55 exhibitors from different industry sectors and 500 visitors, it is now regarded as one of the largest of its kind staged locally. This year’s event is supported by Elevate West Berkshire, helping 16-24-year-olds gain the skills they need for employment.   “The event is a great way for businesses looking to recruit locally to attract the talent they need,” explains Dawn Ray, the event organiser. “Additional activities such as advice on CV content and writing job applications ensures that the event receives a wide variety of visitors, many of whom are looking for work, evaluating options for alternative careers in the local area, or are young people gathering inspiration about future career paths ” continues Dawn.   Exhibitors have space for a table top and pop-up stand, many of which are free depending on the space required, with larger stands attracting a nominal fee.   Anyone interested in either exhibiting or supporting the event in any way should email enquiries@workandcareersfair.co.uk  or visit the event website, http://www.workandcareersfair.co.uk/, for more information.
