Hundreds of people looking for careers advice found plenty of it at a jobs fair in Spalding.

South Holland Centre hosted the event where more than 30 employers and educational bodies met with people looking for information on jobs, training and apprenticeships.

The jobs fair last Tuesday was organised by South Holland District Council, the third event of its kind held in the area in recent years.

Gerry Posnett of Spalding-based Unique Employment Services, one of the exhibitors, said: “It was an absolutely fantastic event and exciting to see all the exhibitors who came.

“From our point of view, we had quite a lot of interest and everyone agreed it was an event well worth supporting.”

Maxine Candler of national home care provider Allied Healthcare said: “It was very busy, very well-attended and seemed to be quite succesful.

“People were coming up to our stand wanting to know what we do and we had a lot of interest in our apprenticeships and training opportunities.”

As well as employment and training opportunities, visitors to the jobs fair were also able to find out about benefits available to them while loking for work.

Coun Howard Johnson, district council cabinet member for economic development, said: “The jobs fair has established itself as a popular and useful event for jobseekers and I am delighted that hundreds of people took advantage of the wealth of information and advice on offer.”
