Get involved! Showcase your business at the 2014 Careers Festival for 15- to 19-year-olds

The Skills Service is looking for around 150 businesses from Peterborough and the surrounding area to showcase their industries at the Careers Festival on the Peterborough Embankment on Thursday, 10 July

Supported by The Skills Show, the European Social Fund and the National Careers Service, the Festival aims to help young people consider their career options, raise their aspirations and ensure they have the right skills needed to gain employment in the local area.

Last year, the Careers Fair on Peterborough Embankment was attended by over 100 businesses and training providers and over 2,000 young people. In response to the positive feedback received from both schools and exhibitors, the 2014 event is being extended to young people from a much wider area.

Free to exhibit, businesses are invited to offer interactive ‘have a go’ style activities to give a taster of what it might be like to work in their sector and talk to young people about the types of jobs they could aspire to.
