Local MP Luke Hall has made a start on an election pledge to hold at least two job fairs a year, with an event in Yate.

Entrance at Shire Way Community Centre was free and people were able to go along to discuss and apply for jobs that were on offer.  CV and interview workshops were also available to help with the practical side of job-hunting.

Those involved in the day included Andrews, Avon Cosmetics, SGS College,Virgin Media, Milestones Trust, BlueBird Care, Allianz Insurance, Avon and Somerset Police, Marshfield Bakery, Kleeneze, Coffee #1, B&Q Yate and DAS legal services.

Speaking about the event, Luke said:  “As somebody who has lived and worked locally for many years, including managing the local Lidl Store in Yate, I have always been committed to helping local people find work. These jobs fairs are a great way for local people to see what jobs are out there, and to put them in touch with local employers. Everybody should be able to find a job that suits their skills and interests and I want to ensure that the avenues to this are open and available.”

Mr Hall says he will be holding two Jobs Fairs a year for the next five years, with the next one expected to be held in central Yate in February.
