Jobseekers in the Melksham area are invited to a careers and training fair next Saturday.

The Opportunity Melksham event takes place at the Assembly Hall, with help guidance available to those looking for work in the local area, and further afield.

A range of local businesses will exhibit throughout the day, including Center Parcs, Leekes and Gough Solicitors.

As well as exhibitors there will also be a number of seminars taking place from a variety of organisations including the Federation of Small Businesses, Pillow May and the University of South Wales.

Jon Hubbard, Chair of Melksham Area Board and Melksham Extended Services who are organising the event said: “This will be an incredibly beneficial event for those who are perhaps not sure which career path to choose or looking for a change. Regardless of people’s circumstances or age, help and advice will be available.

"We have a huge number of businesses attending from all different sectors with a variety of expertise so I hope people come along and get everything they can out of it.”

Parking for the event, which runs from 10am to 6pm, will be free of charge in King Street Car Park, Melksham on March 15.
