Boost your career prospects at the Walsall Works Jobs and Skills Expo
The Black Country’s largest job fair, backed by Walsall Council, is being held next week. There are already 850 registrations from local people to attend the event.
The free Walsall Works EXPO takes place on Wednesday September 14 between 9am and 4pm at The Hub at Walsall College in Littleton Street.
Jobseekers, career changers and people looking for training or apprenticeship opportunities will get to meet more than 80 employers and training providers.
Full and part-time roles will be on offer across a wide range of sectors - including retail, construction, logistics, digital, health and social care, customer service and administration.
Among the major employers taking part are HS2, Balfour Beauty Vinci, RAC, Homeserve, B&M Stores, Decathlon, Mitie and Lovell.
The event is open to anyone, at any point in their working life, from school-leavers to those looking to get back into work or change their career path.
Walsall Works is an award winning initiative funded by Walsall Council to support local people to find jobs, apprenticeships and access training, while also supporting local businesses that are looking to expand and invest in their future workforce.
The Expo is held twice a year with smaller jobs fairs held more regularly to try and reach out to as many people as possible.
