Third Career and Jobs Fair Hailed a Success
A third Career and Jobs Fair organised by Keighley MP Kris Hopkins proved a great success.
With around 40 exhibitors and more than 200 jobs and apprenticeships on offer, there was plenty of opportunities for attendees to explore.
The event was opened by Andrew Jones MP, Under Secretary of State for Transport, who welcomed the wide range of businesses attending and thanked Keighley College for hosting the event, in the modern arena of its Atrium.
Mr Hopkins said:"There is a real buzz about the morning, with hundreds of students and job seekers coming through the college's doors to have those face to face discussions with employers.
"The big problem for young people is understanding the job opportunities available to them. Today we have over 40 businesses and 200 plus jobs and apprenticeships available, connecting young people with different and diverse jobs opens their eyes, changes their horizons to the amazing jobs available."
"We have major employers in Keighley, such as Kone, here who are seeking highly skilled people to work in their businesses. The college is supporting that, providing a pipeline of young people whose ambitions have been broadened, and connecting them into our local businesses"
"Businesses are taking down people’s details and handing out application forms. It is about real jobs and every year this event has grown and what a fantastic set up to hold it in, in Keighley College."
