On Saturday 19th March, several of our careers advisors took part in a very busy ‘Apprenticeship Jobs Fair’ at Plymouth Guildhall. The event, organised by Building Plymouth and the Plymouth Manufacturers Group (PMG) attracted more than a 1000 job seekers of all ages.

Those who popped along were able to try their hand at taster activities, see demonstrations and meet apprentices already working within more than 30 firms who exhibited; including Babcock, Princess Yachts and Mars Wrigley.

The event coincided with the 11th National Apprenticeship Week and the team from CSW Group were on hand to facilitate an information and guidance hub; talking through people’s ideas, offering advice and signposting attendees to the employers we felt they needed to network with.

Exploring career ideas is something our team have over twenty years of experience in and these skills certainly came in useful as they chatted to scores of people throughout the day.

Feedback from our team felt the event was a great opportunity to meet top employers from across the city and find out about hundreds of apprenticeships in Manufacturing & Engineering, Construction & the Built Environment.
