I was delighted to host my second jobs fair at Dover Town Hall in Biggin Street on Friday. The Town Hall was packed with over 1,300 job seekers and people looking for a change of career. The event allowed people to network and get in touch with over 30 firms who were looking to fill vacancies.
The Fair was a massive success. After the interest in last year's Fair. I was keen to organise another event to help get jobs for local people. It's great that unemployment has fallen in Dover since the last election, but there's still much to do to help more people find work. I glad to do anything I can to get people looking for new jobs in touch, face to face, with businesses.
Businesses told me they received many high quality CVs. I hope this translates into more jobs for local people in Dover and many high quality additions to businesses' staff. A big thank you to everyone who turned up and for all businesses who set up a stall at the event.
