Making the most of your Jobs Fair


Message from Robert Halfon MP:

Whilst unemployment has been going down in Harlow over the past few months, it still remains a serious problem. That is why I do a lot of work to encourage apprenticeships and supporting people to get back into work. I have organised this Jobs Fair in order to help bring jobs back to Harlow. In particular, I am grateful for the huge support of community people like Mike Jackson MBE and Ian Hudson from the Harlow Chamber of Commerce and particular thanks to Jobcentre Plus and Seetec. I am delighted to have the generous support of major companies such as McDonalds, Monster, Asda, Raytheon, McKenzie Arnold, Smiths Industries, Frontline Printing and more.

Skills Workshops
Throughout the day we will be running a number of skills workshops designed to build confidence, give advice and answer questions. Space at these workshops is limited and we will be asking you to sign up for the seminars in reception when you arrive and throughout the day. If there is a particular workshop that you are keen to take part in, be sure to arrive early to save your space! The workshops will be taking place on the first floor; however we ask that you report to the reception desk in the main hall 10 minutes before your workshop, and we will show you up to the room.

Thank you and Acknowledgments


Special thanks go to the hard work of Mike Jackson MBE, for his continuous commitment to help the Harlow Community. Without Mike, the Jobs Fair in Harlow would not have been able to happen, as he has spent many hours using his experience to make sure this event is a success. Ian Hudson, at the Harlow Chamber of Commerce, has dedicated time and effort to the event and I praise him for his hard work. Jobcentre Plus have been on board from day one and helped out in every way that they could. Special thanks go to Ronke Abass, Liz Hand and Jill Rogers. Frontline Printing, a Harlow based company, printed the leaflets free of charge for this event and my thanks go to Jason Woolf for accommodating this. Harlow College have supported this event from the beginning by encouraging their students to take part in the Fair. Most of the volunteers on the day will be Harlow College Students who have given up their time to help support this event. Anglia Ruskin University have sponsored the event and ensured that we had the facilities we needed to make the event happen. John Tennison from Smiths Industries has also sponsored the event and continues to support the Harlow Community as a local company. Tonia Gosling and Pat Hay at the Leisurezone have kindly allowed us access to their facilities for the day and we are privileged to be able to use the fantastic state of the art centre. Cllr Janice Elliot from Bishops Stortford has worked hard to sign up Businesses for the event and to encourage people to attend as guests. Khaled Khan from Natwest Harlow has supported the Jobs Fair team with his expertise. Louise Oliver from SR Events has supplied the tables for the event.
