Companies from South Holland and further afield, Lincolnshire Police and representatives from the armed forces will attend a job opportunities fair in Spalding on April 4.

The event takes place at the South Holland Centre and runs from 10am-2pm.

The Just the Job fair is being held to give people a chance to speak to employers who are recruiting and learn about a wide range of careers and educational opportunities through establishments like Boston College and Peterborough Regional College.

People will also have an opportunity to get advice about starting their own business.

Among companies that will be represented are Bakkavor, Butters Grop, Dalehead Foods, Fowler Welch and Princes.

The fair is organised by South Holland District Council and the Department for Work and Pensions.
