Jobs and skills spectacular back at the De La Warr Pavilion

Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair, one of the most exciting employment and skills events on the south coast, is back at the De La Warr Pavilion for the 5th year on Friday 6 March 2020.

The fair, in association with Hastings Direct and Bexhill College, is an opportunity for the whole community to explore the best employment, learning and skills development opportunities the area has to offer.

More than 50 exhibitors including national and local employers will be offering live full and part-time jobs, apprenticeships, career change opportunities, courses, back-to-work support and even advice for businesses and the self-employed. Plus there will be a programme of 121s and workshops offering practical advice and inspiration and lots of support to help visitors make the most of the day.  Over 500 people attended the 2019 event and organisers are expecting this year’s fair to be even bigger and better.

Huw Merriman MP puts the success of the fair down to the tangible opportunities available at the event. Huw said ‘The great thing about the fair is that is a led by community partners who understand the local area and ensure that there is a wide range of exhibitors.  At the fair you can talk directly to employers who are actively looking to fill jobs. You can sign up for courses or volunteer to develop new skills. You can get on the spot advice on your CV, the next step in your career, even how to set up a business or take it to the next level. The aim is for everyone, whatever their age or career stage, to get something meaningful out of their visit. I am proud to be a key partner in the Bexhill Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair which provides great opportunities for everyone.”

Stewart Drew, Chief Executive of the De La Warr Pavilion said, ‘It’s great to see such a fantastic range of exhibitors at this year’s fair with sectors including financial services, education, IT, the creative industries, construction, transport, health and social care. Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair is an important annual event for the whole community and we’re delighted to be hosting it at the DLWP for the 5th year.’

Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair is at the De La Warr Pavilion on Friday 6 March 10am – 3pm.
