The fayre has been organised to help job hunters find work by exhibiting recruiting companies in the area, as well as providing information about skills and training opportunities available to them.

Alongside the exhibitor stalls, free seminars by the University of Buckingham and the National Careers Service are taking place over the two day event, including CV workshops and interviewing skills.

“I’ve been in and out of jobs since I left school, and I’ve decided its career time,” said James Gillingham, 25, from West Bletchley.

“Speaking to the people on the stalls has encouraged me to build on the skills I already have.”
