Tom Abell to visit the One Step Foundation Somerset Skills & Careers Fair 2017

Somerset Club Captain Tom Abell will be on hand to help launch one of the biggest events in the region this week.

Tom will be visiting the One Step Foundation Somerset Skills & Careers Fair at The J24 Venue (Sedgemoor Auction Centre), North Petherton on Wednesday.

Over 3,000 people from across the county are expected to attend the event, which along with over 80 exhibitors makes it the largest of its type in the South West.

The Careers Fair is free to attend in 2017 and features two distinct sessions:

  • 0930-1330 – to inspire students in Years 10-11+, showcasing the exciting and extensive range of options on leaving school/college.
  • 1500-1900 – recruitment fair open to all, for those looking for a new career or to retrain.  The wall of live vacancies will return, detailing job openings and training course placements.  Also open to students (with parents) who can’t make the earlier slot.

The fair is closed to the public between 1330-1500.

The free event is set to be interactive and fun, with visitors to the afternoon slot reminded to bring their CV as exhibitors will be featuring live vacancies and attendees may walk out with a job!

Visitors do not need to book in advance; they can simply come along on the day between 0930-1330 or from 1500-1900 at their convenience.

There will be an extensive range of over 80 exhibitors, including further/higher education providers, gap year specialists, the armed forces and training companies, with industries such as care, health & beauty, engineering, manufacturing and accounting all being represented, along with Hinkley Point C project too.
