Businesses invited to Sutton careers fair to meet borough’s young people

Businesses and training providers from Sutton and the south-east of England are being invited to sign up for this year’s Sutton Young People’s Careers Fair and meet potential employees.

The Fair will be held on Tuesday 29 November at the Pulse Centre in Carshalton College. It will present local businesses with a unique opportunity to meet with young people from Sutton’s schools and colleges, and from other partner organisations who work with the 15 to 24 age group.

The event will give local businesses the chance to raise awareness of their apprenticeship, training and employment opportunities, increase their business profile with young people, and network with other local employers.

There is limited capacity at the Pulse Centre. As exhibitor places are on a first-come, first-served basis, businesses are recommended to book their stand as soon as possible.

Cllr Jayne McCoy, Liberal Democrat Chair of Sutton Council’s Housing, Economy and Business Committee, said: “The Sutton Young People’s Careers Fair is the perfect opportunity for businesses to impress our young people with their training offers and recruit the best local talent for their firms.”

Cllr Arthur Hookway, Lib Dem Chair of the Council’s Post 14 Progression and Employability Board, said: “The Sutton Young People’s Careers Fair will bring our talented young people and local and national businesses together under one roof.

“Sutton is a great borough and we would invite as many companies as possible to sign up as the Fair is the perfect opportunity for employers and young people to meet each other.”

The deadline for businesses to sign up for the Careers Fair is Friday 30 September. To book a stand, please contact the Sutton Education Business Partnership on 020 8770 6962, email chris.jones@sutton.gov.uk.
