The 5th Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair will be back at the DLWP on Friday 6 March 2020

Exhibitor registration now open – deadline 31 December 2019

The 2019 event was a fantastic success with more than 500 people attending – an increase of 40% on the previous year – and over 50 local and national companies, colleges, training, support and voluntary organisations involved. Demand for stands exceeded capacity.

Feedback from 2019 exhibitors included…
‘We’ve seen a good calibre and quantity of young and older people genuinely looking for jobs and have identified 5 potential employees.’
‘We’ve had some genuinely great interactions with delegates and have collected details from more than 40 job seekers.’
‘We have attended all of the fairs and actually think that this time was the best yet for us.’

The 2020 event will repeat last year’s successful format of grouping exhibitors into zones: Marketplace (jobs, apprenticeships & courses), Employability (back to work support and training) and Enterprise (support and guidance for small businesses and start-ups).

The fair promises to be more dynamic and vibrant than ever with workshops and demonstrations planned and a Creative Industries focus for the Enterprise Zone as part of South East Creatives, the ground-breaking new support programme for small businesses in the creative, cultural and digital sectors.

So, if you’re looking to recruit into jobs, apprenticeships or placements, offer back to work support or provide advice and inspiration to small and start-up businesses, please register your interest in exhibiting by 31 December 2019.


We strongly recommend that you register early before we run out of spaces!  The event is Free to all exhibitors.
