Whether you live in Burton, Tamworth, Lichfield or the surrounding areas, if you’re looking for a new job or are on the hunt for an exciting new challenge, over 20 employers, volunteering organisations, training, advice and guidance providers will be on hand to discuss live opportunities at Bromford’s third careers and jobs fair on Thursday, 24 September.

Taking place at the Guildhall, Bore Street in Lichfield, WS13 6LU, new employers attending this year include Hermes who are seeking parcel couriers; Redwood Telecom with customer services vacancies; Interserve Learning and Employment who are offering apprenticeship opportunities; DGS Hygiene Services looking for cleaners - both domestic and commercial - and Remploy who support people with disabilities into work.

Alex Marsden of Hermes said: “We are looking for people to join our expanding network of self-employed lifestyle couriers all across the United Kingdom, delivering for well-known retail brands in their local area. We can offer flexible opportunities to work around peoples’ own schedule and area with rounds available from one to seven days a week.”

Denise Gwilt of DGS Hygiene Services said: “We are a local company established over ten years ago. We are looking to recruit local people to help us to continue to expand. We have recently recruited through our contacts at Bromford already.”

Bromford works in partnership with Lichfield Job Centre Plus. Michelle Huffadine district operational lead there said: “This is such a fantastic opportunity to speak directly with employers and to organisations offering invaluable support and guidance. We are proud to be working with Bromford on what is their third jobs and careers fair and would urge everyone take up this amazing opportunity.” 

The event will run from 10am to 1pm and jobseekers are encouraged to book a free place by emailing, or calling 07841 928238.
