Over 300 job choices all in one place

(Last Updated On: February 26, 2020)

Anyone looking for a new job can meet with over 60 employers at the Torbay Jobs Fair.

The Jobs Fair is at the Riviera International Conference Centre, Torquay on Friday 13 March from 10am until 1pm.

BT, EF, McDonalds and St Austell Brewery are some of the businesses who will be recruiting on the day.

Councillor Swithin Long, Torbay Council Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration, Tourism and Housing, said: “This event continues to grow and delivers excellent outcomes for local businesses and people looking for a new job in Torbay. One of Torbay Council’s priorities is to tackle poverty and events like the jobs fair helps with this. To date, the Jobs Fair has helped generate over 600 job interviews, matching job vacancies with skills to create jobs outcomes.”

TDA, in partnership with Torbay Council and JobCentre Plus, deliver the successful event.
It brings a range of employers from across Torbay and South Devon together in one space.

Connor Conneely, Economic Development Officer at TDA, said: “There will be live vacancies on offer from local employers across all sectors including hospitality, care, hi tech and construction. Getting to meet the employers face to face to discuss the roles available and its suitability for you provides a real advantage to getting the right job. Over 270 people have secured work through the Jobs Fairs so far.”

Jobcentre Plus Work Coaches will be available throughout the day to support and help people. The National Careers Service will also be available to offer advice, guidance and support with CVs.

Marzenna Seares, employer advisor at Jobcentre Plus, said: “Previous Jobs Fairs have been a real success because the event provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to meet and talk to employers who have vacancies. The Jobs Fair will help people fulfil ambitions and find a job that they desire and matches their skill set.”

The Jobs Fair is free to attend and you don’t need to book. Supporting the Disability Confident Scheme, the Jobs Fair is operating a ‘quiet time’ session with Jobcentre Work Coaches from 9.30am-10am for those with additional needs.

Come prepared to speak with employers face to face about the vacancies they have available, dress to impress, have your questions ready and bring your CV.

Visit all the stands, all employers and recruitment agencies have real jobs on offer, that’s the difference of this event to others.
