What EmPLOYERS and job seekers HAD TO SAY the 2013 fair...
"Best Jobs Fair I have ever attended!"
-The Grand, Folkestone
"I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic job fair that we were fortunate enough to be invited to yesterday. It was an amazing success for us.
"We have done a number of job fairs in the past across the areas we cover and I can safely say that this was by far the best attended! Great job to you all and we very much hope to be invited back next year!"
-Care at Home Services
"This year’s Thanet Jobs Fair at Margate Winter Gardens proved a great success for our Kent customers. The event takes place every year, organised by Laura Sandys MP and Sir Roger Gale MP, and this year featured over 700 jobs and 150 apprenticeships up for grabs.
"Ramsgate job coaches Celestine, Sara, Lorraine and Kerry each took 20 of their customers along to the fair, ready to network! Through the fair, Pinnacle People were also able to build relationships with Generation Education and TLC for placements and apprenticeships for our customers aged 18-24.
"Many of our customers secured interviews as a result of attending the fair, with one customer gaining a work placement at Charlton Athletic to complete his Football Association’s course, and David (pictured with his job coach Lorraine) picking up four interviews within the care sector, successfully gaining employment at Premier Care. This is fantastic news and we wish David all the best for his new role and every success for the future."
"I wanted to drop you an email and say how good the Thanet’s Job Fayre was on Tuesday. We have now already interviewed and offered a summer position at our office to one candidate – she will start after the weekend, with additional candidates being interviewed next week for a permanent position at Viking Recruitment.
"For our Seafarer Clients we spoke to a large number of candidates interested at working at sea, in a variety of roles, or training as a cadet and joining the merchant navy...so this was a very positive outcome to the event."
"Hi there Laura. Just so you know, we have taken on one adult person so far and will be taking on at least two youngsters"
"Very well organised and all of our needs were met"
-East Kent College
"Brilliant idea, and it would be great if more places would roll the idea out"
"I would just like to say a thank you for the work you did putting on the job fair on at the winter gardens. I had great news yesterday, through the job fair I have been offered a job"
