Throughout the day, we engaged with lots of young people who were interested in the opportunities The Prince’s Trust have to offer. It was also a great opportunity to network with other providers. The job show was a great success for the Prince’s Trust and so far we have supported 6 young people onto a Get Started with Rugby programme and we will now be working with them to progress them into a positive outcome. We are also currently supporting a further 4 young people onto other programmes which will really help their development and confidence all on the back of this event.

There were enquiries regarding apprenticeships, FE and HE courses on full-time and part-time basis. There were also a fair few unemployed people who attended and, whilst I know these were the not the target market, I believe it was useful for some of them who had perhaps not considered or discussed their future direction in any depth before or been given sufficient support in the past.
The event was really well organised and I thought the venue was excellent. Having all the exhibitors in one room was beneficial to all, in my opinion and I think those who attended got a lot out of the day.”

Victoria and the team have clearly established good links with Employers, JCP and local Work Programme Providers, which is evidenced by the number of people coming through the door at the events – The show is well organised and offers a wide variety of information to the unemployed, giving them a chance not only to apply for jobs, but to talk to local Training Providers seeing how they can up-skill or retrain ready to enter the employment market. Having attended the event myself, I have witnessed how giving people the chance to talk to employers directly builds their confidence and motivates them to conduct further job searching activities. Having also attended alternative Job Shows, I focus on the Connaught Media events, their marketing and PR is strong and they have improved the show by sourcing new locations, whilst remaining easily accessible to their target market. All in all, Apex are thankful to Victoria and the team for their support with these events, working towards our common goal of getting people back into employment and we look forward to working with Connaught in the future.”

’’There are jobs to be had in Peterborough and the Job Show has proved that.

“Found today to be very useful – I liked the variety of companies that were available and all had positive advice and good tips for making an application that stands out. As soon as I entered the room, I was approached by a smiling and enthusiastic member of The Job Show team who already had a company for me to visit to get started which immediately made me feel more comfortable and happy to ask questions to get what I needed out of it. Thanks for the opportunity!”

Jamal Jamal Samaoli from Peterborough said:
“I went to the Job Show Event in May not having a clue what I wanted to do in the future. I saw a stand from Peterborough Regional College offering apprenticeships but not having any knowledge about it, I went to have a look. I was given a lot of knowledge about apprenticeships and it really made my mind up of what path I wanted to take. After looking at different companies and apprenticeship courses I found a particular one which stood out to me. After all the searching, I found ‘Connaught Media’ and that brings me here today. I am now a part of The Job Show helping other people who are in the same position as I used to be and that feels very rewarding!”

Imogen and Angela Imogen Christmas and her mum, Angela Christmas from Peterborough said:
“Me and my mum went to The Job Show not really knowing what to expect. We were both hoping to find a job in care work but didn’t know about the various opportunities that were there. We looked at the care companies that were there and came across one which looked perfect for what we both wanted. My mum and I both applied for job roles in hope that if not both, then at least one of us would hopefully get it. Within a week, me and my mum were ecstatic to find out that we were both offered along for an interview. After the interview we were both told that we had successfully been offered a job with one of the care companies. In shock that me and my mum both got a job at the same work place we cannot thank The Job Show enough for giving us this opportunity that we both dreamed of.”
