HOST OF LOCAL COMPANIES SIGN UP FOR JOBS FAIR

HOST OF PEMBROKESHIRE FIRMS LINE UP FOR MP's JOBS FAIR

A host of local companies
and training providers have signed up to take part in the Pembrokeshire Jobs
Fair next month.

The event is being
organised by Simon Hart MP in Pembroke Town Hall on Monday May 12 and aims to
match up local companies with vacancies with jobseekers.

Last year's event saw 350
jobseekers through the doors and resulted in an estimated 10 per cent finding
work.

Twenty firms have already
committed to taking stands, including a number of large local organisations such
as Dyfed-Powys Police, the Ministry of Defence, University of Wales Trinity St
David and Pembrokeshire County Council.

Other big employers who
are attending are Oakwood, Folly Farm, Magstim engineering from Whitland,
Pembroke Power Station and the St Brides Spa Hotel.

Also on hand to offer
advice and help on training and education will be Pembrokeshire College,
Workways, New Directions and Want to Work.

Caring organisations
including Care in Hand, Shaw Specialist Services as well as Apple Blossoming
Cleaning Services, the Western Telegraph and Penfro Group have also signed up.

"It's hard to say how
many jobs will be on offer as some of the firms aren't hiring immediately but
want to take details of those looking for work," said Mr Hart. "Other companies
such as Oakwood who will be there definitely have posts that need filling.

"We know that the
companies who attended last year were impressed by the calibre of employees
looking for work and I would encourage more local firms to sign up – it is free
to attend for both employers and jobseekers and if we find just one person a
job then it will have been worthwhile."

*The Pembrokeshire Jobs
Fair takes place on Monday May 12 at Pembroke Town Hall from 10am til 1pm. To
