Celebrity plumber Charlie Mullins OBE and the Sun’s career guru Jane Hamilton have backed Alan Mak’s apprenticeships fair this week.
The pair have shown their support for the event, which is being held at Warblington School in Havant on Friday, and has been organised by the Havant MP.
Mr Mullins, who will give an opening speech at 10.30am, left school at 15 with no qualifications before completing a four-year plumbing apprenticeship.
He is now widely regarded as Britain’s first millionaire plumber, having founded Pimlico Plumbers.
He said: ‘I’m delighted to support Alan’s jobs and apprenticeships fair, which promises to be a great event bringing together employers and those looking to build new careers or find a new challenge.
‘As a former apprentice myself, I know how important it is to get on the first rung of the employment ladder, and I look forward to sharing my experiences on the day.’
He will be joined by the Sun’s careers editor, Jane Hamilton, who founded Sunemployment – a careers service and jobs roadshow sponsored by the paper.
She will speak at noon and then host an informal session where local residents can ask for her tips and expertise on the recruitment process.
She said: ‘Whether you are looking for work, hoping for a better position, or simply want guidance on your CV or interview technique – you should definitely come along.’
