Sherwood MP Mark Spencer has unveiled a list of 28 companies who will attend a jobs fair in Hucknall next Friday.

Companies including Aldi, Tesco, Barclays, Rolls Royce, National Grid, Post Office, E’On and Virgin Media will be at the John Godber Centre on Ogle Street, on Friday October 9 from 10am to 2pm.

All have vacancies available, and many - including Aldi and the Post Office - say they have have Christmas vacancies to fill straight away.

Mr Spencer said: “I really enjoy putting these Jobs Fairs on, as it provides a real opportunity for residents.

“I said jobs in the area was my big priority in the election and I hope I’m following through with that promise with events like this, as well as working on things like local Enterprise Zones.

“Unemployment in the constituency has been falling over the last ive years, which is fantastic to see.

“The event should be well worth a visit, with genuine vacancies and even some immediate starts available. Some of these companies employ thousands of people and it’s great to have huge employers like Tesco and Aldi, as well as education providers like West Notts College and CV seminars from Barclays.”
