Thousands of jobs at some of the West Midlands’ biggest firms will be available at an upcoming jobs fair in Birmingham city centre.

Birmingham Jobs Fair on Tuesday 25 October at Matthew Boulton Campus, BMET, is being organised by Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA), to give people the chance to meet employers, training providers and colleges face-to-face and potentially get the chance be interviewed for a role on the very same day.

The event will also have a dedicated area giving guidance on how to manage the current cost-of-living crisis featuring support from Citizen’s Advice, Salvation Army and Spitfire Support Services.

Over 45 employers will be in attendance including BBC, Brit Asia, B&M, Greggs and more. They will all be actively recruiting at the event and those attending are advised to bring along an up-to-date CV.

Plus, there will opportunities to get involved in the current build of HS2 and a chance to find out more about public sector roles with the NHS, Probation Service and Office of the Public Guardian.

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands and WMCA Chair, said: “The Birmingham Jobs Fair is the latest in a series of events to help local people to better connect with the array of employment vacancies across our region.

“Whether you’re searching for a new role, looking to change career entirely or seeking out training and apprenticeship opportunities, Jobs Fairs like this support one of my central mayoral missions - to ensure local residents are given the life chances to thrive. Given the cost of living pressures facing many households in our region, I’m also pleased to hear that guidance will be on offer at the Fair to help people to manage costs.

“I hope locals will come and see for themselves all that is available. I cannot wait to see lives changed for the better.”

Cllr Brigid Jones, deputy leader of Birmingham City Council, said: "We are working with public, private and voluntary sectors across Birmingham and the wider region to improve training and skills and to link people with those opportunities.

"The Birmingham Jobs Fair is a fantastic way for people to see what opportunities are out there, with the chance to have interviews and job offers on the day. I'm really pleased to see there will be specialist advisers to help with cost of living and related concerns, including Citizens Advice, Salvation Army and our own neighbourhood and public health teams."

Cllr George Duggins, WMCA Portfolio Holder for Productivity and Skills, and leader of Coventry City Council, said: “The Birmingham Jobs Fair is a fantastic opportunity for people to not only meet local employers but actually have job interviews right there on the day.

“As we continue to rebuild our economy following Covid-19, we want to help residents in the West Midlands to land jobs with good pay and promising career prospects within a variety of different industries including construction, health and social care, retail, hospitality and more.

“I’d encourage anyone who is actively looking for a new role or is just looking for a new career path, to go along to the Fair.”

The event will be open 10.00am – 3:00pm to the public, with residents able to book slots via Eventbrite. To register your attendance, click here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/birmingham-jobs-fair-bmet-college-tickets-425134006257?aff=Website
