One week to go until annual Bexhill Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair


There’s just a week to go until the Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair 2019 and preparations for this fantastic event are well underway.

In addition to live job vacancies, apprenticeships and business start-up support, visitors to the fair will discover a wealth of opportunities to help them take the first or next step in their career, improve their appeal to employers or simply learn something new.

The event will allow people to explore full and part-time courses ranging from BTECs and degrees through to adult education, and get career advice and back-to-work support and training. They can also discover volunteering opportunities to help develop valuable skills while giving something back.

As part of the talks and workshops programme, The Federation of Small Businesses will be running a session on how to increase your appeal to employers, CXK will be offering career planning advice and the Bexhill Chamber of Commerce will be giving one-to-one CV feedback – simply drop in with your CV between 11am and 2pm.
