As a employer of many local people in Cannock, we will be supporting the first Cannock Jobs fair and look forwad to meeting people there. Details below:
“As the local MP, many employers tell me they are looking to take on new people, either right now or in the near future, but that they do not know how best to meet those in search of a job.
“Yet at the same time many local people who are out of work tell me how desperate they are to get a job, to get back into the workplace, but that they do not know which employers are looking to recruit.
“That’s why I am organising these
Jobs Fayres – it is my attempt to put those two needs together, by getting employers and potential employees in the same room so that they can meet each other, network and discuss what opportunities may be available.”

Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase

The Cannock Jobs Fayre is to be held on Friday 23rd September 2011 at the Cannock Campus of South Staffordshire College, The Green, Cannock, Staffs, WS11 1UE (top map) and will be open to all local people (for free!) in Cannock Chase, from 10am-4pm.

In organising the events, Aidan has personally written to over 100 local businesses, organisations and charities, inviting them to the Jobs Fayres. He is also publicly calling on businesses to get behind the events and has requested all interested companies with job vacancies to get in touch and reserve a stall.
