There will be a variety of jobs on offer, including full and part-time vacancies, as well as temporary roles in the lead up to Christmas.

Many employers will also be offering apprenticeships which are open to all ages, and attendees will have the opportunity to talk with organisations that provide training courses for specific types of jobs.

Councillor Anna Keen, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said:

“The City Hall jobs fair is an opportunity to meet a large number of employers and training organisations all under one roof.

“As a Learning City we are always looking for ways to help people achieve their full potential. Learning new skills through training and apprenticeships is a great way to improve your career prospects.

“I would encourage people from all parts of the city to come along. If you’ve been out of work for a while or looking for a career change, come and speak directly to employers who can answer questions and provide advice.”

Confirmed organisations include Bristol Hospitals, Bristol City Council, Computershare, First Bus, Primark, Poundland, Mama Bears, Reed International, Tesco, Bristol Waste and Proud to Care Bristol.
