Sam said: ‘I went to Alan’s Jobs Fair last year not knowing what to expect, but I was delighted to get a job working for a great company in Cougar Automation.

‘I have really enjoyed particularly helping to develop new technology at the firm.

Alan said: ‘I was delighted to meet Sam and hear about how he is building a career for himself at Cougar Automation.

‘It is great that we have a local company that’s specialising in new technology and is at the cutting edge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.’

The MP held his third Jobs fair on March 9 at Havant Leisure Centre. Many locals turned up, eager to learn more from the free employability, CV building and job interview workshops.
