Luke Hall's Sixth Jobs Fair to take place Friday 8th September from 12.00-14:00
Hundreds of full and part time jobs will be on offer, from nearly 30 keen businesses, eager to recruit from the local area.
Speaking about the event Europa Group have said "Luke's Job Fairs are a great way to meet new potential employees"
Employers who attended previous Jobs Fairs include:
Army Careers Centre
Royal Navy Reserves

...and many more!
This latest fair to be organised comes as Luke continues to deliver on his pledge to proactively help locals get back into work by holding at least two jobs fairs a year.
Since his first Jobs Fair, Luke has managed to play a big part in reducing the number of people on Jobseeker's Allowance by an impressive 10%. In addition, employment for the area has increased to 80% - one of the best in the country! With more and more people coming to each consecutive Jobs Fair, this is sure to improve even further over time.
Speaking at the previous February event, Andy Faull, Store Manager at Tesco Extra in Yate said,
“We were delighted to support Luke Hall’s careers fair and we welcome opportunities such as these, which connect local employers with the talent in the area. The fair was one of the busiest we’ve attended so far. The retail sector can offer a really rewarding career and so we were excited to be talking to as many people as possible about it”.
Luke said about the events:
“I’m delighted to be able to organise my 5th Local Job fair in our area but for the first time in Thornbury on the 3rd of March. There will be a wide range of job opportunities on offer for those who may be looking for their first job, want a change in career or are just looking to get back into the work place. Unemployment in our area has reduced steadily since 2010 and I hope this fair will help keep to build upon that even further”
There will be an opportunity later on in the year for those seeking employment or a new career path, to attend another of Luke’s jobs fairs if they cannot make this date.
