There is now one week to go until the Skills and Careers Fair in Whitehaven. 

The event was announced by MP Trudy Harrison and around 30 companies will be attending at The Solway Hall on April 28. 

This will be the fourth skills fair Mrs Harrison has hosted in the constituency, in which businesses, training/apprenticeship providers, and employment support services will demonstrate the opportunities on offer to young people, jobseekers, and those looking to re-train.

She said on social media: "There's just one week to go until my Skills and Careers Fair in Whitehaven Civic Hall. 

"The final line-up of stallholders has been confirmed and it promises to be an informative and enjoyable event.

"Thanks to all the exhibitors for your commitment, and I look forward to seeing you all on the day."

The event is being supported by DWP and Jobcentre Plus for more information, email
