More jobs and money locally is a priority for us all. It is what I have been campaigning for since being elected. But politicians shouldn't just talk – they need to act too. that is why I organised a Jobs Fair at Dover Town hall. I asked local companies to have stands, and publicised this across the community hoping that jobseekers or those looking for a career change would come along.
I thought it could really help local people and local businesses, but I was taken aback at just how successful it was. 1200 people visited, and the businesses there were enthused by the amount of potential employees there are out there.
I had a fantastic day at the Jobs Fair, getting to talk to visitors and employers about the issues facing the jobs market and economy.
