The Spring South Devon Jobs Fair Another Success! 


More than 600 candidates took advantage of a free jobs fair in Torquay’s Town Hall Assembly Rooms on 16 March.

South Devon employers who are actively recruiting exhibited at the event, with over 400 jobs on offer from over 60 employers.

Employers saw candidates throughout the day with high levels of interest shown in vacancies with many applications received and more to be expected.

A high standard of candidates and CVs led to many people being invited to interviews. People from all across Torbay attended to showcase their diverse range of skills, some who are currently unemployed, others who wanted a change of profession or route to progress their career in a chosen field.

A number of people spoke to recruiters about building on their existing skills, and local organisations took the opportunity to engage with motivated and enthusiastic local people.

A staggered entry system meant it was constantly busy while giving recruiters and candidates a chance to speak to everyone.

The event created exposure for local companies that they would not have had recruiting independently and provided recruiters with the opportunity to network with other local businesses.

Jobs Fair was officially opened by Torbay’s Elected Mayor Gordon Oliver and delivered by TDA and Torbay Council, in partnership with Jobcentre Plus.

The Jobs Fair will return in October 2018 – Look out for more about the events coming soon
