West Suffolk MP and minister for skills Matthew Hancock will be holding a jobs fair in Haverhill on October 11 from 10am to 12.30pm at Haverhill Arts Centre.
There will be opportunities to apply for current and future vacancies with local businesses as well as attend workshops on apprenticeships, traineeships, CV writing and starting your own business.
As the minister responsible for apprenticeships Mr Hancock is also looking forward to bringing local businesses and organisations involved with apprenticeships together to offer opportunities, particularly for young people, looking to take the vital first step in their careers.
West Suffolk College will be on hand running the workshop providing advice on starting an apprenticeship.
There will also be opportunities to learn about traineeships, a pre-apprenticeship programme which combine work placements with studying to prepare for life in the workplace.
Businesses and organisations such as Adams Harrison Solicitors, the Jan Cavelle Furniture Company, Crem Recruitment and the National Apprenticeship Service are just a few of those already signed up to attend, with more to come.
Attendance is free and anyone looking for a job, advice or a change in careers is encouraged to attend.
Mr Hancock said: “As the minister for skills I can’t wait to open the Haverhill Jobs Fair on the 11th and give people the chance to find out more, and hopefully apply for, apprenticeships and job opportunities with local businesses.
“If you’ve thought about apprenticeship, are looking for work or would like to change jobs then come along on the 11th to see what Haverhill has to offer.”
