More than 2,000 jobs and apprenticeship opportunities in the City of Wolverhampton will be on offer at a special event for residents.

The City Jobs Fair, which has been organised as part of the build up to Wolverhampton Business Week, will be held in the WV1 Suite at Molineux Stadium (WV1 4QR), on Friday 8 September, from 10am to 1pm.

More than 50 employers from across Wolverhampton will be at the event to showcase the jobs available to city jobseekers.

They include Adecco, Debenhams, Royal Wolverhampton Hospital NHS Trust, Wolverhampton Homes, McDonalds, Magna Specialist Confectioners, Radis Community Care, Premium Choice, the Armed Forces, and many more.

The event is sponsored by Workbox - a new initiative in the city providing residents with information about jobs, training and support all in one place.

Wolverhampton's team of advisors, along with Jobcentre Plus, will also be on hand to offer advice and support.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "We have an ambitious long term plan to encourage enterprise, empower people, reinvigorate our city and improve the prosperity of businesses and residents - and this event supports that.

"This is an excellent opportunity for residents looking for work or a change of career.

"Over 50 local employers will be exhibiting and with a wide representation of job opportunities - both full time and part time - on offer, this event is not to be missed.

"We're optimistic about the future of the city. It is a great place to live, work, visit and do business."

Sarah Jury-Onen, Department for Work and Pensions District Manager, added: "The City Jobs Fair will be an excellent opportunity for jobseekers to find out about the job vacancies in the Wolverhampton area, both in established and new business.

"It promises to be a fantastic event and I would encourage everyone who is being helped by the Jobcentre to go along."
