Coventry College will host a free careers event on Wednesday, July 19, giving locals the chance to speak to some of the largest employers in Coventry and Warwickshire and get support with CV-writing and interview skills.

Running from 9.30am to 1pm on the college campus on Swanswell Street, the event is designed to help people of all ages find out about local job and career opportunities, training programmes and work placements, or simply provide inspiration over their next steps.

It will feature over 20 employers including Coventry City Council’s apprenticeship team, Severn Trent and the Armed Forces. In addition to Coventry College’s dedicated careers service and employer engagement teams, college partners from the National Careers Service and Coventry Job Centre Plus will be on hand to help existing students and the wider Coventry Warwickshire community reach their goals.

Exhibitors include: Anchor Care Group, Aspire2B Sport, Creative Flair Childcare, Derry Building Services, Gray Dawes Travel, Keller, Stellantis, West Midlands Police, The Prince’s Trust, South Warwickshire NHS Trust, Willmott Dixon, and more including the RAF, Army and Royal Navy.

Emma Ingram, Head of Employer Engagement at Coventry College, said: “We are looking forward to the return of our Summer Careers Fair after such a successful event last year when it returned for the first time since the pandemic.

“We have brought together a huge array of employers from a variety of industries to help both our students and members of the public get the inside track on a host of exciting career opportunities in the local area.

“We hope to make a real difference to people in the area and help them put their best foot forward, and we can’t wait to see everybody on the day.”
