Jobs fair date

The second Buckinghamshire Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair will take place on Saturday 23 September.

The county-wide event, to be held at The Elgiva Theatre in Chesham, is an opportunity for employers to promote their jobs and apprenticeship opportunities to anyone looking for employment or seeking a change of job or career.

The fair will run from 10am-3pm on Saturday 23 September.

The first hour from 10am to 11am has limited spaces for people who would prefer a quieter experience or need additional support – people are advised to book early if this is the case.

Attendees will be able to meet and talk with more than 25 exhibitors and support organisations including All Spring Media, Silverson Machines, Carousel Buses, Buckinghamshire Fire, First Response, Balfour Beatty, Atkins Global, DeVere Hotels, Buckinghamshire Council and Buckinghamshire NHS Trust. Buckinghamshire Adult Learning will once again be giving mini workshops on the day.

Exhibitor spaces are still available and can be booked by emailing jobsfair@buckinghamshire.gov.uk.

Joseph Baum, Deputy Cabinet Member for Education and Skills at Buckinghamshire Council said: ‘It has been a long-running passion of mine to help people find opportunities in Buckinghamshire, and I am proud to have played a part in organising this event.’

This year the event is being supported by Opportunity Bucks, the council’s flagship programme to improve opportunities for people in Bucks.

Opportunity Bucks focuses on 10 wards in Bucks where people are experiencing the most hardship, one of which is Chesham.
