The Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair, an important fixture in the local jobs and skills calendar, is set to return to the De La Warr Pavilion on Friday 25 March 2022. Exhibitor registration is now open and local businesses and organisations are encouraged to register ahead of the 4 February deadline.

The last event, held in 2020, attracted over 500 visitors and exhibitor feedback included ‘A really good selection of potential candidates’, ‘Lots of appointment slots filled’ and ‘Valuable for enticing people to Open Day’.

Huw Merriman, MP, said ‘The Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair is invaluable for local employers, colleges and skills development organisations looking to recruit and great for raising awareness and networking.  For 2022, we’re keen to include a wide range of opportunities across sectors including Construction, Tourism & Leisure, Hospitality, Retail, Transport, Digital, Manufacturing, Engineering, the Creative Industries, Land-based, the Green economy and Health & Social Care.

The event is always over-subscribed so we would urge anyone interested in exhibiting to register early to avoid missing out.’

Stewart Drew, Director & CEO, De La Warr Pavilion, said ‘We’re delighted the Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair will be back at DLWP in 2022. It’s a fantastic event where the whole community, particularly our young people, can explore the best employment and skills development opportunities the local area has to offer.’

Due to ongoing operational and scheduling pressures as a result of the longer term impact of the pandemic, the 2022 event will run from 11am to 3pm and include a maximum of 20 exhibitor spaces. As a not-for-profit community-led initiative, the fair will continue to be free to exhibit at but exhibitors will be selected based on criteria including live opportunities available and a £100 refundable deposit will be payable.

The Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair is on Friday 25 March 2022, 11am – 3pm at the De La Warr Pavilion. Register to exhibit by Friday 4 February 2022.
