BRAINTREE Council has announced it will be holding another job fair this spring after two successful events last year.

Following on from the success of two well-attended job fairs last year, the council has announced another to be held in Witham in partnership with the Department of Work and Pensions.

The event will feature up to 30 local employers from various industries for roles located across the district and county.

Attendees will be able to find out about career opportunities, training and further education, graduate schemes, apprenticeships and more at the event which is suitable for people of all ages looking for opportunities and advice.

Some of the employers and educators confirmed so far include Maycast Noakes, Braintree Village, Stansted Academy, Colchester Institute and Essex Police.

The event is free, and no booking is needed to attend.

There will also be a live jobs feed on the Braintree District Council X (formerly Twitter) account @BraintreeDC providing live updates on current vacancies and roles throughout the day.

Braintree Council’s economic growth boss Frankie Ricci said: “I am delighted we are able to announce our first job fair of 2024 and provide yet another opportunity for residents to meet local employers and find out about career opportunities in the district and throughout Essex.

“The Braintree district continues to grow as a place where businesses choose to base themselves and with that comes new employment options.”

Employers wishing to have a free stall at the job fair can contact to enquire.

Limited spaces remain on a first come first served basis.

The event will take place at the Witham Public Hall in Collingwood Road on Thursday, March 14, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
