Jobs fair is a great success in Hexham

Hexham MP Guy Opperman held his third annual Tynedale Jobs Fair last week, with hundreds of people attending and nearly fifty businesses and employers there looking to hire. There were jobs available in a wide range of sectors, including retail, construction and the Royal Navy, and by the end of the day there were not only people who had filled out application forms and found a new job, but one person was even expected to start their new job just days later! Mr Opperman also welcomed local secondary school children from Prudhoe Community High School and Corbridge Middle School, giving them the chance to find out what jobs and opportunities are available to them in the future. With people leaving with new jobs and opportunities, it was a very successful day.
