Job and apprenticeship fair showcases career opportunities in Huntingdon

03/07/2016

As part of its on-going remit to help local people find work and businesses recruit and develop staff, EDGE is holding a Jobs and Apprenticeship Fair from 10am to 4pm on Friday, 8 July 2016 at the Priory Centre in St Neots.  

Huntingdonshire businesses exhibiting at the Fair are recruiting for jobs in a range of sectors including construction, engineering, care, catering, finance, education and retail.  Many exhibitors are also offering apprenticeship schemes, for all ages looking to earn money while gaining valuable skills and work experience.

Huntingdonshire Regional College, College of Animal Welfare and West Anglia Training Association will also be at the Fair to provide training and careers advice.

Julie Drummond, EDGE Coordinator said: “Whether you are starting out, looking for a new job or want to change career, this Fair could provide the answer.  There are so many exciting opportunities with diverse and innovative companies within our region and we hope to see lots of people taking the next step on their career path at this event.”

The Fair has been organised with St Neots Learning Partnership, who are keen to show recent school leavers the range of career opportunities available in the area. EDGE is a jobs and skills partnership that works with Alconbury Enterprise Campus and businesses across the local area to help them find the people they need, and give people the skills they need to fill the vacancies local businesses have.
