More than a thousand people turned out to the Walsall Works EXPO, which was held at Walsall College’s Business and Sports Hub.
The event was attended by more than 80 employers and training providers, including B&M Stores, The Mercian Regiment and Whitehouse Cox.
Visitors were offered job, training and apprenticeship opportunities throughout the day, from 10pm to 4pm.
Walsall College’s Business Training Solutions team offered job seekers information about the training and support it offers to help adults and business upskill.
The fair was organised by Walsall Council’s Employment and Skills team, in partnership with DWP and The View programme.
