Job hunters can take advantage of some new opportunities.

MP Priti Patel is hosting the second Witham Jobs and Apprenticeship Fair in partnership with Essex Chambers of Commerce, Witham Jobcentre Plus and Stansted Airport on October 10.

More than 250 jobseekers and more than 35 businesses and organisations attended last year’s event.

About 14 employers have signed up so far, including Stansted Airport, Crittall Windows and RDC Recycling and Waste Management.

It takes place at Witham Public Hall in Collingwood Road from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

Ms Patel said: “This is a tremendous opportunity for jobseekers to meet local employers and learn about the work vacancies that could potentially kick-start a fantastic career.

“This event also provides the occasion for employers to meet talented local people in search of meaningful work.”
