Wokingham Borough schools careers fair set to take place next month

29 September 2015

This year’s annual careers fair is being held at Loddon Valley Leisure Centre next month (Wednesday October 7) where young people, and their families, can find out more about careers, apprenticeships, university and college.


Last year over 60 different exhibitors attended with demonstrations, information and professionals offering advice. This year is promising to be even bigger with companies such as the National Grid, RAL Space Research, Rockwell Collins Aviation, NHS, Fire and Rescue Service, Thames Valley Police and Wokingham Borough Council already confirmed.


Representatives from the electrical, hospitality, IT, engineering, construction, science, finance, health, sport, hair and beauty sectors will be present, as well as many more diverse businesses.


Cllr Charlotte Haitham Taylor, executive member for children's services at Wokingham Borough Council, said: "The Wokingham Borough careers fair is a great opportunity for young people to learn about different career paths and work opportunities. With a large variety of local and national employers present, young people thinking about their future can ask questions to experienced and knowledgeable professionals. It is also a chance for businesses to show potential candidates what working for their company is like."


Any businesses who wish to have a stand at the fair should contact Elevate centre manager Sandie Evans on (0118) 974 6900.


This event is sponsored by Wokingham Borough Council with donations from construction companies Dawnus and Faithful & Gould. For more details visit Wokingham Elevate website or alternatively, just turn up on the day between 4.30pm and 7.30pm.
