    Many of Exeter’s best-known employers are taking part in the city’s largest jobs fair next week. Exeter Autumn Jobs Fair 2022 takes place at the Corn Exchange on Tuesday 27 September, from 11am to 3pm.

    The jobs fair has been organised by Exeter City Council and Exeter Jobcentre Plus and more than 40 employers and organisations will be taking part, including:

    Royal Devon University Hospital, Courtyard by Marriott, McDonald’s, Crealy Theme Park and Resort, University of Exeter, Lidl, Exeter City Council, Stagecoach, Devon County Council, BT, Next, and IKEA.

    Cllr Duncan Wood, who has responsibility for Exeter’s Skills Agenda, said: “We are pleased to once again be running a Jobs Fair in conjunction with the Job Centre to support their customers, and the wider public to explore the jobs that are currently on offer across Exeter and the wider area.

    “It’s fantastic to be able to welcome back employers such as IKEA, BT, the NHS and many more, as well as some employers that haven’t attended before such as Jurassic Fibre and NEXT. There really will be plenty of opportunities for everyone.”

    Jobseekers should come prepared with their CV, including a digital copy if possible. Anyone currently claiming benefits should talk to their Work Coach about attending.

    Interview space will be provided for companies wishing to engage with potential candidates on the day.

    Candidates should be supported with the application process by employers accepting CVs or offering paper application forms so that candidates can complete them during the fair.
