THIS year’s Gosport Employment Fair will be held at the town’s new leisure centre later this month.

It is Gosport’s largest annual recruitment, careers and training event, with local employers and support organisations exhibiting.

There will be 31 employers from the aerospace, business services, construction, defence, healthcare, hospitality, leisure, marine, manufacturing, public sector and retail on hand to talk about the careers they have on offer.

The event takes place on Thursday, January 30 from 1pm until 7pm and is free to attend.

‘It’s great that locally-based employers are continuing to support this annual event, which promotes jobs and careers and starting a business to Gosport residents,’ said Cllr Stephen Philpott, chairman of the economic development board at Gosport Borough Council.
