Jobseekers will get the chance to apply for positions and discuss roles face-to-face with employers as a jobs fair event is held at Great Yarmouth's Town Hall.

The employment fair will be hosted by Great Yarmouth Jobcentre Plus, in partnership with the Norfolk Community College Project and Great Yarmouth Borough Council, at Yarmouth town hall's assembly room next Wednesday, January 15, from 10am to 2pm.

Aimed at benefitting those within the community who are looking for employment, the recruitment event will see more than 40 employers in attendance, with 1,000 jobs on offer.

Among the companies taking part are James Paget University Hospitals, Premier Inn, Lloyds TSB, Hermes and Avon, with vacancies also on offer for employers including Richardsons Leisure, Haven and P&S Personnel.
