Supported employment and training charity, Landau, has announced further details to its latest job fair in Hereford, which aims to support even more people into the workplace.

The charity is hosting the event on April 27 at the Shell Store in Rotherwas and has secured more than 40 businesses to promote their latest employment opportunities.

Exhibitors cover a range of industries and sectors and include Balfour Beatty, Wye Valley NHS Trust, Barclays Bank, Lidl and West Mercia Police.

Caroline Richardson, head of employment services at Landau, said: “We’re excited to be bringing back our job fair to the Hereford region, after such a successful event last autumn.

“We know times are tough across the job market, so we wanted to bring together a wide range of hiring businesses for job seekers to speak to directly and make those all-important connections.

“Alongside the jobs fair, attendees will be able to speak with employability experts and organisations that can help job seekers maximise their skills and achieve their objectives.”

The event opens at 10am for a networking session, where business leaders can connect and collaborate with other employers, while the job fair opens to prospective employees at 12 noon.

The free event is being delivered in partnership with The Marches Growth Hub, Hereford Enterprise Zone and Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce.

Landau annually helps in the region of 3,000 individuals back into the workplace or into training schemes through its specialist support. Last year it was awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its work in Promoting Opportunity (through social mobility).
