The event is hosted in partnership between Bristol City Council, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and the National Careers Service.
Recruiters from 60 companies will be on hand to discuss career opportunities, with a range of full and part-time vacancies available. Some employers will also be offering apprenticeships which are open to all ages, and there will be opportunities to talk to organisations about training courses and support. Advisors will be on hand to help and support visitors during the day.
Companies attending cover all types of jobs from all over Bristol and include Amazon, Avon Fire and Rescue, Bristol Energy, Computershare, eXPD8, Hays, Hinkley Point, HMRC, LIDL, McDonald’s, Simpson Law UK, Sodexo, St Monica Trust and TK Maxx.
Councillor Anna Keen, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Education and Skills, said: “Following last year’s successful event, we are once again bringing together a range of experts who can make a real difference to support people’s efforts to get work. This is a great opportunity for people who are looking for work to get to speak directly to employers and ask questions and get advice. As a Learning City our priority is to work together across the city to promote learning and skills, and this is another example of that partnership work in action.”
The partners involved in putting on the fair work closely throughout the year to bring together employers with vacancies to fill and people who want a job. They jointly deliver about 12 jobs fairs a year but Cabot Circus Jobs Fair has the highest number of employers and opportunities. These events offer job-hunters a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk to a wide range of employers at one time and in one place.
This will be the third year that the team at Cabot Circus have hosted this community event for the residents of Bristol. The fair takes place in the central plaza of Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BX on Wednesday 12 June from 11am to 3pm.
