More than 1,000 students from schools across the region attended the fourth East Cambs Careers & Skills Fair at Ely Cathedral. Almost 50 exhibitors filled this spectacular venue, inspiring young people about their futures. The event included an interactive area dedicated to apprenticeships.
Schools included the North Cambridge Academy, Witchford Village College, Soham Village College, Ely College and Kings Ely.
Lucy Stowell from Elveden Farms Ltd exhibited at the event and said: “It’s always great to get out to try to inspire individuals to join the industry you work in. An event like this is perfect to showcase a variety of industries and help young people make decisions about their future.”
George Harrison, a Recruitment Consultant from Labour-tech Recruitment, was also positive: “It was great to speak to the young people of surrounding schools and get an insight into their prospects for the future. It was good to see their engagement and genuine interest in what a Recruitment Agency can offer in regards to employment in the future.”
