HUNDREDS of people turned out to the fifth annual Jobs Fair organised by Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid.
There were 90 employers and organisations free at the event which took place at North Bromsgrove High School yesterday and was free to both exhibitors and employment-hunters.
More than 2,000 opportunities were up for grabs – from college courses and apprenticeships to voluntary roles and full and part-time positions.
West Mercia Police had a number of officers there, along with recruitment staff.
Liz Nurse said: “The turn-out is fantastic.
“We are currently recruiting police officers for Bromsgrove so it is great timing for us.
“This gives us a pool of candidates we would not have otherwise met.”
She added they also spoke to 16-year-olds who were able to get involved in the cadet scheme and could maybe be police officers in the future.
Voluntary roles and support staff roles are also available.
West Midlands Railway was there to offer a variety of roles, including apprenticeships, engineering posts, office jobs and conductors.
Jenny Wilson from West Midlands Railway said: “It’s been really positive.
“There are logs of different organisations here, it’s been really busy.
“We have had a lot of interest in the apprenticeships we run.”
Mr Javid said it had been brilliant, better than he ever imagined.
