REGISTRATION is now open for jobseekers to take part in a News-backed online recruitment fair.

The idea behind it is for firms to advertise their vacancies online at between September 2 and 13, which becomes a one-stop shop for job hunters to browse, ask questions about the firms, and apply for jobs.

Job seekers can also take advantage of the compatibility test which allows them to find out which companies are most suited to

Joanne Harwood, group category manager at Johnston Press, The News’s parent company, said: ‘Our aim is to help candidates and employers to connect all over the country.

‘With busy lifestyles searching for the perfect job can be a time-consuming exercise, especially when trying to juggle existing work commitments.

‘A virtual experience, which results in the same outcome by helping job seekers find better opportunities at the convenience of their homes, can only benefit job seekers.’

Businesses can get involved by calling 0114 299 6173 or emailing
