Bromley ebp jobs fair - August 2019

Bromley’s Youth Employment Scheme (YES) held a Jobs Fair at Bromley Central Library during the summer, which was open to young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who were looking for work.

The morning drop-in session was opened by the Mayor of Bromley, Councillor Nicholas Bennett JP, with more than 30 local and national employer organisation representatives attending.

The employer organisations came from a range of work sectors and included Clarion Housing, Caremark (Bromley), Firmdale Hotels, Job Centre Plus Department for Work and Pensions, London Fire Brigade, Santander and Transport for London. The representatives from these organisations provided live job opportunities to promote to the young people who took part. The council’s Human Resources and Learning Development teams were present and promoted apprenticeship opportunities within the council.

The YES Jobs Fair, run by the Bromley Education Business Partnership, was hailed a success with 122 young people attending. The Jobs Fair enabled these young people to see what opportunities are available to them locally, as well as what is on offer on a wider scale.
