The Big Futures show provides an excellent opportunity for local companies and organisations to engage with future employees (and future customers in many cases!) so really helping the East Sussex area to develop and grow. It also provides an opportunity for organisations such as Young Enterprise, who help prepare young people for the world of work and to be entrepreneurial whether running their own business or working as an employee, to engage with both students and teachers / lecturers and communicate the benefits of our programmes.

The NHS has attended the Big Futures Show for the last 4 years and every year it just gets better. This is a very well organised event where the organisers listen to feedback and act accordingly. As an employer it enables us to meet a large number of local students who will potentially be our future workforce. Additionally it's a great way of networking with other employers. The BFS is a firm fixture in our NHS calendar.
BFS is a marvellous concept that brings all the right people into the room together, whether you are a school leaver or a person looking for your next role, you'll find so many companies in one room all with jobs to fill. It's worth a visit and the tiny entrance fee. If you're a parent make sure your kid's school is sending your school-leaving children. With so many opportunities in the room its a not to be missed event.
Reply from The BIG Futures Show: Many thanks Mandy. We greatly appreciate the feedback and are very proud of BFS and the opportunities that it presents for both the current and next generations seeking their BIG Future. See you at BFS 2020 on 28th April.
