Mark Mullen, BID operations manager, said: “We have heard from a number of town centre businesses with vacancies to fill and we wanted to provide a platform where all those looking for work could come and chat to prospective employers and see what’s available.

“Christmas is a hugely important period for retailers in particular and it’s a good time to find work and build a career.

“We’ve got some exceptional employers confirmed already and hopefully it can help get people back into work in time for a festive pay cheque.”

Employers already confirmed for the Jobs Fair include A-Plan Insurance, Nationwide, Northamptonshire Police, Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service while representatives of the West Northamptonshire Council ‘Job Club’ will also be on hand.

Businesses will be able to man their own stand to meet and discuss potential opportunities with candidates.

Businesses interested should email [email protected] with their business name and contact details.
