Anyone looking for a new job can meet with Torbay and South Devon employers, who are actively recruiting, at the South Devon Jobs Fair in Torquay on Friday 16 March.

This free event will take place in Torquay’s Town Hall Assembly Rooms from 9:30am to 1pm, providing candidates the opportunity to meet with up to 80 local employers.

The fair, which is delivered by TDA, Torbay Council and Jobcentre Plus in partnership, conveniently brings a range of employers from across Torbay and South Devon together in one space.

Torbay’s Elected Mayor, Gordon Oliver, said: “This event can match job vacancies with skills and provide an excellent platform for people looking for a new job to find exactly what they are looking for. Torbay and South Devon offers a fantastic range of opportunities from tourism to construction, with seasonal, permanent, apprenticeship and graduate roles available. I would urge anybody looking for a job or a change of career to attend this event.”

TDA will also be showcasing the range of business support it provides to local employers to help them develop, grow and take on more employees. Jobcentre Plus Work Coaches will be available throughout the day to support and help people with CV’s. Job applications will be available in Torquay Jobcentre.

Sara Morgan-Broom, Senior Economic Development Officer at TDA, said: “We have had great interest from employers across the region and look forward to hosting an event with a diverse range of employment opportunities. Getting to meet the employers face to face to discuss the roles available and its suitability for the individual provides a real advantage to getting the right job. Over 70 people have successfully secured work through the Jobs Fairs so far.”

Karen Palin, Employer Engagement Manager at Jobcentre Plus, said: “Following the success of the October event, the Jobs Fair provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to meet and talk to employers who have vacancies.  I think that the Jobs Fair and the support in the Jobcentre will help people fulfil ambitions and find their desired job.”

Previous South Devon Jobs Fairs have seen a high number of candidates successfully securing permanent and temporary contracts, with the range of opportunities providing them with suitable roles.

If you’re looking for a new job and would like to attend the event you can just turn up on the day. Advice is to come early and bring copies of your CV. For more information please call Marzenna Seares at Jobcentre Plus on 01803 356184 or visit
