is being hosted this week, on Friday 7 March 2014, by local Member of
Parliament, Brandon Lewis. The fair, held from 10.00am – 4.00pm at the
Great Yarmouth Racecourse, will provide residents with the opportunity
to meet potential employers in the area and take part in a variety of
workshops from how to write CVs to how to set up a business.
Mr Lewis is working with sponsors CH2M HILL, 3Sun and the Great Yarmouth
Mercury, along with businesses from the area, to help young people and
those who are long-term unemployed develop the skills required for
entering the world of work.

Mobility Foundation, providing coaching support for young people on one
of its major programmes, the Speakers Parliamentary Placement Scheme.

to assist young people get the advice they need to find work and have
continued this programme, engaging with MPs up and down the country to
help their constituents find pathways into employment.
Speaking about the event, Brandon Lewis MP said: “The Great Yarmouth
Jobs Fair is an excellent opportunity for residents to meet local
businesses, learn more about the job opportunities available in the area
and improve their chances of finding long-term employment.
“Our sponsors CH2M HILL, 3Sun and the Great Yarmouth Mercury have helped
to ensure that this will be a high quality event, lending their time and
expertise to really make the Jobs Fair a success. We have a wide range
of workshops on offer, from making good first impressions in an
interview to starting your own business. I hope that Great Yarmouth
residents will take the time to come down, whether they are looking for
a new job, thinking about changing career, or are just interested in
picking up some new skills and information."

We are currently in the middle of Apprenticeship Week and it is an
important time to highlight the opportunities out there for young people
and those looking for a new career.

problem for companies like us is finding the right people to fill these
jobs. CH2M HILL works on some of the UK’s largest infrastructure
