Amber Valley Jobs Fair – 16th October 2015

I’m delighted to provide more details regarding the fourth Jobs Fair I will be holding on 16th October 2015. The event will take place at Ripley Leisure Centre from 10am to 4pm.

Previous events have seen thousands of constituents attend, with hundreds finding work or training opportunities as a direct result.

Many local employers are already signed up to attend the Jobs Fair, including the Manthorpe Group, Owen Taylor & Son, BPI Recycled Products, Birchwood Homecaring Services, HL Plastics, McDonalds, Leonard Cheshire Disability, GI Group, IKEA and Deb, as well as many more.

Also attending are education, training and apprenticeships providers such as Chesterfield College’s Learning Unlimited, the National Citizen Service, Being Your Own Boss and QA Associates.

As always, the fair is free of charge to attend for both constituents and businesses. A limited number of stands are still available for employers and training providers: please email or ring 01773 744341 to register.

Amber Valley Borough Council are providing free car parking to those attending the fair and Trentbarton are offering a half-price zigzag ticket for people travelling to the fair on the day – the voucher can be downloaded from

These jobs fairs are a great way to bring employers, training providers and jobseekers together, to bring unemployment in Amber Valley down even further. There will be a wide range of organisations offering a variety of opportunities for full-time and part-time positions, and for people of all ages. I hope to see you there.
