Stuart Anderson MP has announced that he will be hosting a community jobs fair. It will be the first of its kind locally as the city embarks on its economic recovery from COVID-19. The event will take place in early November. It will be a free event for both attendees and exhibitors. Stuart has said that it will be a unique opportunity for employers to display their latest recruitment opportunities to a wide range of potential employees and enable them to engage with other like-minded businesses.
The event is the next step in one strand of Stuart’s five-point plan for Wolverhampton South West. As a local MP, Stuart is committed to championing economic opportunities for local people. He has spoken of his determination to see better employment and training opportunities delivered so that there are greater opportunities for everyone. Recently, Stuart hosted a roundtable discussion between the Minister for Work and Pensions Baroness Stedman-Scott DBE and some of Wolverhampton’s largest and most influential businesses. He now wants to go further by inviting businesses to attend his jobs fair.
Stuart is welcoming expressions of interest from businesses with opportunities available for local people. Residents in Wolverhampton and the wider region will be able to talk with employers in a welcoming and relaxed environment to hear more about the exciting opportunities that exist. Businesses interested in taking part can email firstname.lastname@example.org
The West Midlands is well known for its highly skilled and diverse workforce. As a local MP, Stuart is working hard to make the city an attractive place to work with increasing housing supply, good transport networks and infrastructure, and a vibrant cultural and social scene. Major employers from financial services, advanced manufacturing, aerospace, technology, and life sciences are setting up shop on the doorstep. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has taken over two floors at the recently completed i9, which is expected to deliver hundreds of jobs in the years ahead – with many already recruited. The job market is increasing in both size and competitiveness as inward investment, including through the Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022, levels up local communities across the region.
Stuart Anderson MP said: “Protecting jobs and helping people back into work is a top priority of mine. It has never been so important to host a community event like this. As we build back from the pandemic, it is vital that we ensure local people of all ages have well-paid and fulfilling jobs on their doorstep. I want to ensure that local people are connected with opportunities to develop fulfilling careers and learn new skills, and that businesses are supported with their recruitment needs. This fair will be the first of its kind locally and will bring together both businesses and individuals alike. I would welcome expressions of interest from any business that would like to attend. Together, we can make a difference to the lives of local people.”
