Hundreds attend Buckinghamshire Council's second Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair
The second Buckinghamshire Council Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair took place on Saturday 23 September.
Over 400 people came through the doors of the Elgiva Theatre in Chesham, meeting over 25 exhibitors promoting their jobs and apprenticeship opportunities.
The exhibitors there on the day included:
Adviza, Aegis Security, AGR Automation, All Spring Media, Buckinghamshire Council, Buckinghamshire Fire, Buckinghamshire Highways, Buckinghamshire Skills Hub, Careers Springboard, Carousel Buses, Community Impact Bucks, CPI Selection, DWP, Haringtons, Hospice of St Francis, HS2 Limited, Neuro Diverse Self Advocacy, Oasis, Right at Home and Silverson Machines.
Buckinghamshire Adult Learning was also on hand to deliver its mini workshops once again.
This year, the event was supported by Opportunity Bucks, the council’s flagship programme to improve opportunities for people in Buckinghamshire. It focuses on 10 wards in Buckinghamshire where people are experiencing the most hardship – one of which is Chesham.
Joseph Baum, Buckinghamshire Council’s Deputy Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, commented:
"Connecting Buckinghamshire residents with local employers has long been a passion of mine. I am proud to have helped organise this event, which provided real opportunities for job seekers to build better futures.
“It was incredibly rewarding to see people find the support they need to obtain meaningful employment and apprenticeships."
