“Whether it is a first job or a new role people are looking for, this is an excellent opportunity to meet with a wide range of businesses all offering exciting opportunities.

“I would like to thank the WBLA and Jobcentre Plus in particular for ensuring the success of the event, as well as all the businesses and training providers who contribute to it. It has proven to be an extremely important event for the city each year”.
