Hundreds of job seekers to meet employers as Daily Echo Job Fair returns after four year gap

By Andrew Diprose, editor

Hundreds of job seekers will be brought together with local employers when the Daily Echo Job Fair returns for the first time in four years.

The event is on Thursday, September 22, from 10am to 3pm at the Bournemouth Pavilion on Westover Road.

It is free to the public.

A large number of businesses have signed up to take part in just the last few days.

Organisers say the Job Fair is an excellent opportunity for employers to promote themselves in a face to face setting in what has become a very competitive jobs market.

The Daily Echo will be promoting the Job Fair in print and online across its titles and also on its regional recruitment website sw1jobs.com, ensuring that the event attracts the best talent the area has to offer.

The Job Fair traditionally brings together dozens of employers from a wide range of sectors under one roof.

Whether leaving education or changing careers, job-hunters will be encouraged to come armed with CVs, ready to hand to would-be employers who interest them.

Angela Boyer, pictured left, Sales & Events Manager at the Daily Echo and associated titles, said: “The Daily Echo Job Fair is a fantastic opportunity to meet candidates who are actively looking for work.

“We know that local employers have found the jobs market extremely challenging in the last two years.

“This will be a great platform to showcase what makes them as employers stand out from the crowd.

“With previous events attracting over 600 visitors, there are plenty of opportunities to recruit on the day.”
