This year’s Careers Fair, led by the Education & Employment Directorate, will take place on Wednesday 28 October 2015 at Prince Andrew School starting at 10am to 3.30pm and re-opening in the evening from 6.30 to 8.30pm.
The annual Careers Fair provides members of the public, students and job seekers with a chance to meet employers face-to-face and gain a real insight into the requirements for different careers on the Island. The Fair also highlights opportunities available and allows people to market themselves to prospective employers.
The Careers Fair is essentially for anyone who is interested in career development.
This year there will be demonstrations by drugs dog Millie and police dog Tommy, and from the Police, Fire and Ambulance response teams. Also Mike Harper and Bevan Youde from 2onMain will be showing off their catering skills. There will also be short presentations by staff members from Solomon & Company, the Public Solicitor’s Office, Enterprise St Helena, Public Health, the Education Directorate and Internal Audit.
The Prince Andrew School Hall will be arranged for visitors to browse the various stalls and see what each organisation has to offer, view displays and ask any questions. Stall holders will include Solomon & Company, Connect St Helena, Bank of St Helena Limited, South Atlantic Media Service (SAMS), Enterprise St Helena, Delco, ProArc, Essence, Stretches Extreme Cuts, Health Directorate, Corporate Services, Police and Prison Services, Fire and Rescue Services, SHAPE and the Education & Employment Directorate.
Careers Fair Coordinator Cynthia Bennett said:
