Coventry Job Fair - Wednesday 26th October 2022

26 Oct 2022

More than 1,000 jobs will be showcased to jobseekers in the region when the UK’s leading jobs fair comes to Coventry.

National, regional and local organisations will be showcasing employment opportunities when the Coventry Jobs Fair comes to Coventry Building Society Arena on Wednesday 26th October from 10am to 1pm.

Vacancies available range from traineeships and apprenticeships through to entry-level and up to mid-level management – with an importance placed on supporting individuals.

Over 1,000 people are expected to be in attendance on the day to speak with more than 30 exhibitors from a wide range of sectors.

Organisations already confirmed to be in attendance are West Midlands Police, the West Midland Combined Authority, Staffing Match, Caremark, and the Carers Trust.

It will mark the fourth time Coventry Jobs Fair has been held at Coventry Building Society Arena.

The fair is now in its eighth year and has seen significant growth year-on-year, more than doubling the visitor numbers it received five years ago.

The organisers of Coventry Jobs Fair hold more than 140 events a year in 60 locations across the UK.

Sean Heppinstall, Commercial Director at The Jobs Fair, said: “Our main goal with our events across the country is to get Britain working”.

“The Coventry Jobs Fair will present an ideal opportunity for jobseekers to speak directly to employers about their industry, what working for them entails and ask all of the key questions before applying for a role.

“There will be thousands of people in Coventry who will be looking to pursue new jobs and careers and we hope this event will provide a platform to support and assist individuals with their choices.

“We’re expecting the key sectors this year to be in hospitality and retail, as businesses and organisations in those areas look to bounce back from an incredibly difficult time.

“Healthcare will also be at the forefront of many job-seekers minds after seeing the impact key workers in hospitals and care organisations have had during the pandemic.”

Paul Michael, Commercial Director at the Arena, added: “It’s crucially important that we support employment across the region, and by hosting the Coventry Jobs Fair at Coventry Building Society Arena we are helping to support that drive.

“The event has been hugely successful and we are delighted to welcome the Job Fair back for another year.

“We look forward to continuing to work with the organisers to facilitate the continued growth of the event.”
