More than 70 national organisations and employers will be there, including sponsors Lockheed Martin, Green King, BP Pulse, H & M, Met Police, British Transport Police, Santander, Ingram Micro, MK NHS Trust, Nikon, Ministry of Justice, and the University of Bedfordshire.

MK Job Show founder Mike Bickerdike said: “This year’s MK Job Show is bigger and more impactful than ever before! There has never been a better time to change career paths due to the ever-increasing cost of living and the amount of local job vacancies available to explore.

“Attendees will get the opportunity to introduce themselves first-hand to their potential new employer, so we strongly advise everyone to bring along copies of their CV, business cards and utilise the event to the best of their ability.

“Research the companies you are interested in before attending, dress to impress and go and grab that next career opportunity with both hands!”

The show is free to attend and is open from 11am to 5pm each day. You can register here.
