On Tuesday 1 October 2019, Torfaen County Borough Council’s Economy and Skills will host their 16th annual jobs fair at the Congress Theatre in Cwmbran.

Doors will open at 11am and the event will run until 2pm. The jobs fair traditionally attracts several hundred job seekers from across Gwent.

This year, there will be a variety of big national employers present on the day, as well as many local businesses, all looking to offer live vacancies.

Industry sectors present on the day will include retail, production, care, customer service, warehousing and hospitality, to name but a few. Attendees can expect to see a substantial number of job vacancies on offer and a number of recruiters will be offering interviews on the day.

Representatives from the Council’s Bridges into Work 2, Working Skills for Adults 2 and Nurture Equip Thrive projects will be on hand to offer further employability support and training opportunities.

Executive Member for Economy, Skills & Regeneration, Councillor Richard Clark, "Our Economy and Skills team have a proven track record of producing successful events and this latest Jobs fair promises to be another busy one with more than 35 recruiters having confirmed their attendance so far.

Hundreds of our residents have found work through these events in recent years, so i would urge anyone that is currently looking for employment or training to come along and take full advantage of what's on offer."

Torfaen Employability and Adult Community Learning Manager, Angela Price said, "The Jobs Fair is open to anyone who is looking for work and is completely free to attend. This event is a great way to speak with potential employers and recruiters face-to-face, apply for jobs there and then and collect further information."
