The Hexham Jobs Fair returns to Wentworth Leisure Centre this summer.

It will take place in the Sports Hall on July 11 from 10am to 2pm.

The free event is sponsored by Thompsons of Prudhoe and supported by Colin Caygill Antiques and Tesco in Hexham.

A total of 55 employers will be promoting their vacancies and career options.

Northumbria Police, NHS, Slaley Hall, Northumberland College, Cambian Dilston College, and Barclays are just a few taking part.

It is expected to be attended by a number of students and school leavers from local high schools.

Thompsons of Prudhoe said: "We are thrilled to be supporting this event and are really looking forward to meeting new applicants who may be interested in their vacancies and training programmes, such as the Demolition Pathway."

The Hexham Jobcentre event is an excellent opportunity for job seekers to find employment and apprenticeships.
