I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be hosting my third annual Bromsgrove Jobs Fair on Friday 3rd March. Applying for a new job can sometimes be intimidating, which is why my Jobs Fair will provide direct one-on-one communication with employers, advice on improving your CV and tips on attending interviews. If you’re interested in attending my Jobs Fair as an exhibitor or a sponsor, or want more information, please do get in touch.
