More than 250 people visited a jobs fair laid on by Crawley Borough Council last week with 21 potential employers and agencies to approach.

Exhibitors included WH Smith, Cova Security Gates, Siemens and People’s Partnership, as well as One Resourcing which is recruiting for various roles at Gatwick airport.

The Employ Crawley team is looking at organising a repeat event in the autumn.

My thanks to all the exhibitors, organisers and everyone who attended for playing their part in an event which will hopefully result in people being matched with the businesses who need their vacancies filled. My best wishes to everyone who is looking for a new job or to return to work. The council is raising prosperity levels in Crawley by creating an environment for businesses to succeed and Employ Crawley plays an important part in this by helping people achieve their potential.

Residents can visit either the library or town hall on Monday to Thursdays between 10am and 3pm, or email for an appointment with an adviser.
