Tendring Jobs & Career Fair 2018


The date for the 6th annual event has been confirmed as TUESDAY 2nd OCTOBER.

It will again take place in the Princes Theatre, Clacton on Sea and be open to visitors from 10am - 4pm.

If you are interested having a stand at the event, bookings are now being taken and are offered on a first come first serve basis.

This event is a great way of not only promoting your company but of advertising any job vacancies you might have at the time to perspective candidates ‘face to face’.

Last year over 30 candidates secured a new job with one of our exhibitors as a direct result of visiting on the day.

The cost for a 6ft stand is £50 + Vat and this includes your table, 2 chairs, your buffet lunch and coffee & tea vouchers.

There are also some great Sponsorship packages available, with prices starting at just £250.00 + VAT.

Tendring District Council, in partnership with the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) held the 5th Tendring Jobs and Careers Fair on Tuesday 3rd October 2017.

The event took place at the Princes Theatre, Town Hall, Clacton on Sea and was open to visitors from 10.00am – 4.00pm

Over 2,000 visitors attended for the first time ever and  there were a total of 55 exhibitors from both local and national companies were represented, covering a wide range of sectors including retail, hospitability, construction, manufacturing, tourism and care. There were also some great training and volunteer opportunities available to visitors too, including Colchester Institute, Nova Training, Catten College, The Army & Army Reserves, The Royal Navy & Royal Marines, Essex Fire & Rescue & Essex Police.

Businesses who were not able to exhibit were still able to advertise their job vacancies free of charge on the Jobs Board and there were approx. 500 jobs available on the day to visitors.

There was also an opportunity for 2 lucky visitors to win a Forklift certificated course worth £500 each and the lucky winners were Trevor Woodger and Lewis Cooper.

Free transport was again provided for jobseekers from Harwich, Dovercourt and Jaywick Sands.

The Council also hosted a Buffet lunch to over 30 of the districts top businesses, many of whom hadn’t been to the event before and this gave them real opportunity to see first hand how important this annual event is to both employers and those looking for work. We already know from the feedback we have received from many of our exhibitors, that a large number of those that came along on the day have already found employment.


We would like to thank our 2017 Sponsors for their generosity in helping us stage this year’s event.
