Lynnsport in King’s Lynn to stage major jobs fair
Companies, business leaders, training providers and representatives from the public sector will be showcasing the career and training opportunities available in the borough at Opportunities West Norfolk (OWN) on October 19 - 20 at Lynnsport.
Now in its sixth year, the Opportunities West Norfolk progression event aims to inspire and inform 14 - 19 year olds, helping them to forge careers in West Norfolk. This year over 40 exhibitors have already signed up to attend.
With interactive exhibitions, which allow young people to get hands-on experience of the various sectors that make up West Norfolk's economy, OWN has earned itself a reputation for dynamism. Last year over 1,500 young people attended.
Nick Daubney, chair of the West Norfolk Partnership, said: 'West Norfolk is a great place to live, work and do business. We have ambitions to make it even better.
'Key to this is ensuring that local talent is nurtured so that the private and public sector have a skilled, motivated and dynamic workforce capable of driving their industry forward.
