Employ Crawley successfully hosted its first jobs fair in two years at Crawley Library last week.
Around 500 people came along on the day to find out more about over 2,000 local job and training opportunities in the area.
Local employers from a wide range of industries including retail, construction, hospitality, driving, financial, social care and airport services, were on hand to offer advice to potential applicants alongside the Employ Crawley team.
Comments from local employers at the fair included:
“Friendly team and a diverse range of candidates”
“Great buzz in the room”
“Friendliest job fair with a great atmosphere.”
I am delighted to see how successful this year’s event was. It was great to see so many local people come along and take advantage of the help and advice on offer. I hope that it helped them to secure employment and training.
