“I am thrilled to be holding my first ever Job Fair this September. This event is the first of it’s kind in Broxtowe and will provide local jobseekers with the opportunity to meet with both regional and national employers showcasing a range of job, kickstart and apprenticeship and opportunities on offer.”
