Hundreds flocked to Merry Hill to explore the opportunities and talent on offer at Mike Wood MP’s eighth annual jobs and skills fair.

More than 40 organisations and hundreds of local people met face-to-face at the annual event organised by the MP, and later spoke of a ‘great buzz’ at the event which saw a wide range of job and training opportunities on offer for everyone.

Employers such as Smyths Toys Superstore saw queues of candidates applying for roles with the retailer saying they had lined up 27 promising candidates for interviews. Mr Wood said:

“We have had some really great feedback and I am absolutely thrilled with how useful this year’s event has been in helping local people find the next step in their career.

“Hundreds of people have applied for jobs, and our colleges and education course providers have signed up loads of new students too. “While we currently have a record number of people in work in the UK, we all know there are vacancies that need filling and good paying careers available for people who are willing to consider doing something different.

"As well as thanking all of the employers and organisations who came along on the day, I also want to give a big thank you to Merry Hill for sponsoring and hosting us again this year.”
