Virtual Jobs Fair on 8th September

The next Virtual Jobs Fair is on 8th September,11.00 -12.30 . We are running this jointly between DWP, National Careers Service and all four Local Authorities in the West of England which reflects the travel to work area we live and work in.  It will be held again on Twitter and Facebook and we are encouraging employers to make themselves available during the time so that they can answer questions by DM (which is as near as we can get to a face to face Jobs Fair at the moment).
