Halesowen MP to host eleventh annual jobs fair

Halesowen and Rowley Regis MP, James Morris is joining forces with Halesowen BID to present his 2023 Career Expo in the town.

The duo will work alongside Halesowen College’s Skills Shop and the Department for Work & Pensions to present the 2023 Career Expo, a jobs and skills fair that will give local employers the opportunity to recruit new talent and support those looking for work or a training opportunity.

This event will be the eleventh that James has hosted since becoming an MP in 2010 and is a key part of his commitment to boost jobs and skills provision across the constituency.

Employers who have already confirmed their attendance include KFC, Co-Op, National Express and the Black Country NHS Trust. James said:

“I am excited to be holding my eleventh jobs and careers fair, and we already have many local and national employers signed up with opportunities to offer. 

“It will be a good opportunity for those who are progressing on to the next stage of their education this year, or looking to find work, or perhaps those who are considering a change in jobs.

“I’ve had the opportunity to visit some of the local employers who are going to be with us on 3rd February, and I know they will be offering some very exciting opportunities.”

Vicky Rogers, Manager of Halesowen BID, added: “We are delighted to be working with Halesowen College’s Skills Shop, with the DWP and with James to put on our Career Expo in the Cornbow Centre next month.

“The Cornbow enjoys a high footfall so we are anticipating many visitors, and we hope this will be a great opportunity for local people looking for new work or training.”

The Career Expo will run between 10am and 1pm on Friday 3rd February at the Cornbow Shopping Centre.

Details for parking at and travelling to the centre can be found at cornbow.co.uk.
