On Friday 5th February 2016, I will be holding my second Bromsgrove Jobs Fair. With over 45 employers, there will be hundreds of apprenticeships and jobs on offer. If you are looking to change your career, find your next step or a new position, do come along to Parkside on Market Street (entrance via the library). Please feel free to pass on the details to anyone who may be interested. I look forward to seeing some of you there.
