Last week, Stephen attended the Community Links Jobs Fair in East Ham. The event included exhibition stalls from several local employers such as Nando’s, Zzetta, Travel Lodge, Bupa and IBM. Other local organisations also attended, including the University of East London, Newham Workplace and West Ham United Foundation.
The fair offered guests the unique opportunity to interview for jobs on the day. Attendees were also offered free interview clothing provided by Ben Sherman, and had the chance to browse stalls set up by small businesses and self-employed entrepreneurs. Further entertainment included face painting, games, a raffle, and free food provided by Nando’s and Zzetta Pizza.
Speaking after the event, Stephen said “today’s Jobs Fair was a big success. In the current climate, it is vital that we help people into work and this is a great way to do just that”.
“More and more employers are looking to recruit in Newham as London continues to move east, which is very encouraging!”.
