Busy first day at careers fair

Hundreds of jobseekers, students and those looking for training descended on the Jobs24 careers fair at The Forum in Norwich yesterday.

The 10th annual event - which is organised by Archant Norfolk - continues today from 10am to 6pm.

Alison Garrod, from Archant telephone recruitment sales, said: 'It's been absolutely brilliant. All 27 standholders have been busy, and the quality of the applicants has been better than ever.'

Rob Rae, from Gardline Marine Service which had a stand at the fair, said: 'We are offering jobs across the board from office work to offshore based roles. In the morning we had about 60 people with a good 20pc worth following up.'
