Who can I expect to see at the event?

Dozens of approachable local employers with genuine jobs on offer, many with an immediate start. Friendly people from training organisations to advise you about the qualifications you need for a future career and the courses on offer. Voluntary organisations - because volunteering is a great route into paid employment, it helps the community and looks brilliant on your CV! Plus careers advisers and workshops will motivate and guide you through your job search activity.

What should I wear?

Please dress smartly. You will be meeting your potential future employer or training provider, so you'll want to make a good first impression. Some employers will be doing 'on the spot' interviews too, so you need to look smart just in case that happens to you.

I'm claiming JSA. Who should I tell if I've been booked to attend but can't make it on the day?

Please inform your Jobcentre Plus personal adviser. Attending the LETS Fair is an important part of your JSA job search activity so you will need to explain why you cannot attend. Your benefits could be at risk if you simply fail to turn up without letting the Jobcentre know.

On arrival please check the notice board or speak to a member of staff for full details. Please note that all workshops will be subject to availability.
