Jobs & Careers Fair 2019

Since I was elected to serve the people of Dudley South in 2015, I have made it my number one priority to promote growth, investment and employment opportunities within the Dudley South constituency.

Following the success of last year’s event, I am organising my fifth annual Jobs and Careers Fair to bring local job-seekers face-to-face with employers and training providers who have opportunities on offer.

Sponsored by Intu Merry Hill and in partnership with the Department for Work & Pensions, the Jobs Fair will take place at Brierley Hill Civic Hall from 11am to 3pm on Thursday 26th September.
