Hundreds of jobs will be up for grabs at a bumper spring Job Fair being held next week.

At the event, which is being held next Wednesday (June 15) at Everards Meadows, businesses will be showcasing their vacancies and jobseekers of all ages will be able to speak to company representatives, find out more information and get expert help.

The event, which is being hosted by by Blaby District Council between 12-6pm, is also an ideal opportunity for school and college leavers to come along and find out about trainee positions as well as apprenticeships.
