Epsom and Ewell Employment Fair 2018
Five Epsom based organisations have been working together to establish an employment fair in Epsom with the event getting bigger each year. Great for local businesses looking to recruit, or for job seekers.
The 2018 Epsom and Ewell Employment Fair will take place on Friday 18th May again at Epsom Methodist Church, Ashley Road. If you know of a local individual or organisation who would be interested in providing financial support to help publicise this event; or someone who would be able to help to raise its profile please contact Nanette Chandler from the ETHOS project (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tony Axelrod, Town Ward Borough Councillor TAxelrod@epsom-ewell.gov.uk 07986 947974.
Free to attend for both employers and those seeking employment, the purpose of the event is to enable local people to meet, face to face with local employers and training providers, all of whom are actively recruiting in the Borough. This face to face contact enables employers and individuals to discuss suitability and interest in the jobs on offer. “Many people find this human contact works so much better for them than submitting a string of online applications” said Nanette Chandler, a Careers Advisor working with the ETHOS project and one of the organisers.
32 local employers attended the 2017 Epsom and Ewell Employment Fair, with more than 100 local people coming along to look for employment opportunities. Feedback from the event was excellent with 88% of stallholders interested in attending in 2018. 100% of stallholders said that they spoke with individuals who might be of interest to them. 75% of stallholders interviewed people during the event, or said they will be arranging to interview individuals they met after the Employment Fair. Feedback included:-
“Great event with huge foot fall of people. Last year’s event was super, but this is bigger and better! Looking forward to the next one!”
“Very useful fair. Friendly and sociable event”.
