Just the job!

06 October 2014

We hosted a very successful and busy Job and Careers Fair in partnership with Job Centre Plus on Wednesday 20 February. Over 900 people attended and there was representation from over 50 employers and organisations offering jobs and Apprenticeships.

 

The fair was opened by the Mayor of the Borough of Bracknell Forest – Councillor Mrs Jennie McCracken and Councillor Mrs UllaKarin Clark – Deputy Mayor of Wokingham Borough Council.

 

The fair generated lots of enquiries and many visitors signed up to courses or jobseekers’ training on the day. Visitors and employers gave great feedback about the college facilities and it is anticipated that this will become an established annual event.

One exhibitor said:

"My colleagues and I were extremely impressed with how well organised the event was and how many job seekers attended."

Campbell Christie, CBE, Principal of Bracknell & Wokingham College was delighted with the outcome of the day:

“The college was delighted to be able to host this very worthwhile event for our local community. Jobcentre Plus did a great job and we were very happy to run this prestigious event in partnership with them.

The Job Fair was a great opportunity to welcome people of all ages into our modern building to get valuable advice and experience which will help them to build their futures. We were also pleased to see so many representatives from the local business community attending offering jobs and advice.”
