Mr Pincher said, “The event was a great success and it was really pleasing to see such a range of employers offing jobs and apprenticeships in Tamworth. It is also encouraging to see so many keen and active people searching for a job. However it is a competitive market and job hunters need to ensure they have a good CV and are well prepared at the interview to give themselves the best possible chance of securing employment.”
The event attracted a range of people from new job seekers leaving school, university graduates researching career options and experienced and skilled workers who were either looking for a career change or to get back into work.
