Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair, the annual jobs and skills event for the whole community, will be back at the De La Warr Pavilion on Friday 10 March.

The 2023 fair, in association with Southeastern, Bexhill College and Southern Housing, is set to be a bumper event with over 50 businesses and organisations actively recruiting into live job vacancies, apprenticeships, placements, graduate training schemes, skills development opportunities and courses. Plus there will be talks and workshops, a CV surgery and a new Creative Industries Zone showcasing the wealth of creative opportunities across the region.

Huw Merriman MP said:‘Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair is a fantastic opportunity to explore the local jobs market and have genuine discussions with prospective employers about their current vacancies. With opportunities in Transport, Housing, Construction, Financial Services, Digital, Health & Social Care, Education, Manufacturing, Utilities, Hospitality, the Creative Industries and many more sectors, I would urge anyone in the area considering a new job or career or thinking about returning to work to come along on Friday 10 March.’

A not-for-profit community-led initiative, Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair is organised by the De La Warr Pavilion, Huw Merriman MP, Bexhill College and Rother District Council with the support of Bexhill Chamber of Commerce. The event is designed to offer something for everyone, with opportunities for new entrants to the jobs market and the over 50s being a particular focus for 2023.

The fair is an important pillar of the area’s jobs and skills calendar and the 2023 event will be particularly special given the recent announcement of the award to Rother District Council of more than £19m from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund to help create new jobs and bolster career progression in the area’s creative and cultural sectors, particularly for young people.

Stewart Drew, Director & CEO, De La Warr Pavilion, said: ‘We’re really excited to be once again hosting the Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair. It’s always a welcoming and friendly event and with everything from jobs and apprenticeships to retraining opportunities and full and part-time courses, it really does offer something for everyone in the area, whatever your age or career stage.’

Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair is on Friday 10 March at the De La Warr Pavilion. Explore the exhibitors and register in advance on our website or come along on the day between 10.30am and 3.30pm.
