BUILDING and maintenance provider Mountjoy will be one of dozens of firms attending the Portsmouth Opportunities Fair next month to demonstrate careers on offer.

The fair will be taking place on Saturday, October 18, at Portsmouth Guildhall between 10am and 3pm.

Its aim is to get young people excited about living and working in the city.

The exhibiting companies will be holding interactive sessions and workshops to help children from local schools learn about the pathways into different careers.

Visitors to the Mountjoy stand will learn what it’s like to build an electrical circuit and carry out tiling with the chance of winning a prize.

Trade apprentices from the company will be on hand to explain how they got into their craft after leaving school.

The firm is a provider of housing maintenance and refurbishment services for Portsmouth City Council.
