A jobs fair is set to be held on Friday, with over 30 employers looking for staff.

The employment event, which is being hosted by Burnley FC in the community, will be held between 11am and 2pm on Friday, October 15 in Brierfield.

There will be 30 local businesses who have signed up from across the Burnley and Nelson areas all of which have live vacancies.

Businesses include the NHS, Boohoo, Princes Trust among other companies in the manufacturing, warehousing and care industry.

People should dress appropriately and bring their CV to hand over to potential employers, as well as having the opportunity to ask questions which you would normally not get the chance to ask.

A similar event was held in 2019 which attracted over 700 visitors, with hopes from organisers to match that target at the most recent event.

The event will be held at the Leisure Box, Northlight, Glen Way.
