Companies looking for an apprentice were given the chance to find their perfect employee at an Apprenticeship Jobs Fair at Cambridge Regional College.
The event, backed by Cambridge Mayor Councillor Jeremy Benstead – a big supporter of apprenticeships – brought together employers and would-be apprentices.
The mayor, who attended a lunch for employers before the event, met businesses and job-hunters at the fair. He said he had been very impressed by the day.
“I am pleased to be here for the Apprenticeships Fair. I have very impressed with everything I have seen here today,” he said.
Organisations attending included Cambridge University Hospitals and Sartorius Stedim, with apprenticeships on offer in areas including childcare, engineering and healthcare. Students and external job-hunters were at the jobs fair looking for their ideal apprenticeship.
Angela Hughes, who heads apprenticeship programmes at CRC, said it had been a great opportunity for both employers and future apprentices.
“We work with hundreds of employers to train apprentices in a very wide range of industries, and a jobs fair like this gives everyone the chance to get together and find the perfect employee or employer,” she said.
