HUNDREDS of job opportunities will be on offer tomorrow at Oxford Town Hall.

Jobseekers will be able to sign up for new careers at the recruitment fair at the venue in St Aldate's from 10am to 3pm.

There will be 25 employers in the main hall for the first Oxford Times Job Fair of the year.

Major employers including the Army, South Central Ambulance Service and Oxford Bus Company will be among those taking part.

The fair is organised by Newsquest Oxfordshire, the group which owns the Oxford Mail, and staff will attend to direct jobseekers when they arrive.

Organiser Ravinder Pal-Hampton said: “We are delighted that 25 firms have signed up for this job fair.

“It’s an excellent opportunity for employers as they get the chance to meet prospective employees and let them know face-to-face what positions they have on offer.

“The job fair gives jobseekers a great opportunity to meet lots of different employers on one day and pass on their CVs and other details.

“There are quite a few employers in the care sector who have booked stands - carers are in such high demand at the moment.”

The free job fairs are held twice a year, in February and September, and this is the fifth event taking place.

The first fair in 2016 attracted more than 1,500 jobseekers and hundreds of prospective employees are expected tomorrow.

The job fair is once again being sponsored by care firm Day and Nightcare Assistance.

The company has staff working throughout the county to help clients live in their own homes.

Staff from the Oxfordshire Association of Care Providers and Jobcentre Plus will have their own stands at the fair.
