Jobs Fair aims to bring young people and employers together

Published Friday, 1 July 2016

Bromley’s Youth Employment Scheme (YES) is holding a Jobs Fair on Friday 8 July which will be open to those between 16 and 24 from 10am to 12.30pm at the Bromley Central Library.

Young people from Bromley seeking employment are invited to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to meet employers who have jobs on offer.

Councillor Peter Fortune, Executive Member for Education said: “The idea is to give young people the chance to meet employers in informal surroundings so they can see what is on offer as well as seek advice on how to make sure their CV really ‘sells’ them.

Bromley has a talented pool of young people who have decided that university is not right for them but would rather seek on the job training through apprenticeships. The Jobs Fair is a chance to see some of what is on offer locally as well as farther afield.”

The YES programme, run by the Bromley Education Business Partnership, has already successfully placed 96 young people in employment as well as offering work experience to many more. There are plans to step up activities in the future to get even more young people into the work force and to help employers find the talent and skills they require.
