Following on from last year's successful Jobs, Apprenticeships and Skills Fair in Harold Hill where 27 residents secured jobs and a further 56 were offered training opportunities, Julia Lopez MP will be hosting another fair in partnership with the Romford Jobcentre next month.
This upcoming Jobs, Apprenticeships and Skills Fair will be hosted during National Apprenticeship Week on Friday 9 February at Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch, RM11 1QT, between 09.30am-12.30pm.
This event will be helpful to anyone who is seeking work, looking to get back into work, switch careers, or learn new skills and gain experience. Trained job coaches from the Romford Jobcentre will be in attendance at the fair to offer advice and information, while local employers will be there to meet residents to discuss their current vacancies, as well as what other roles and training they have to offer.

The full list of confirmed providers is listed below and will be continuously updated as we approach the fair.
The event is free to attend, however applicants can choose to register their attendance at the fair in advance via the Eventbrite page.
