MORE than 300 jobs are up for grabs during a jobs fair at the Cascades Shopping Centre in Portsmouth this month.

The event, in partnership with Learning Links, Cascades, The News, and Portsmouth City Council, will feature a number of employers, including retailers like TK Maxx, Argos, and Sainsbury’s, Marriot, and Wetherspoon’s among others.

The fair takes place on Thursday September 27, between 10am and 4.30pm.

With opportunities available in retail, hospitality and customer service, there are plenty of chances to land a job – be it full-time, part-time, or just for the Christmas period. Leone Hill, from Jobcentre Plus, said: ‘Now is just the right time to start thinking about a job for Christmas. Many employers take on extra staff to deal with increased demand, so there’s lots of potential to get work. Sectors like hospitality, retail and food manufacturing all offer great opportunities for seasonal work.

‘Temporary work gives you the chance to try your hand at a job you might want to make into a career; it looks good on your CV; and it also gives you something to talk about in job interviews. The experience can make a real difference when you’re applying for something more permanent.’
