Jobseekers might get on the path to a dream career at an upcoming jobs fair planned for North Walsham. 

The town's Jobcentre is organising a jobs fair at North Walsham Community Centre in New Road, in partnership with North Norfolk MP Duncan Baker. 

More than 16 employers from a range of industries should be there, and there will be a focus on businesses looking for seasonal Christmas staff, as well as those offering permanent positions.

Mr Baker said: "This is the fourth event this year that I have run in conjunction with our local DWP team.

"So far, each one has been hugely successful and has provided a good opportunity for local people to network and speak with a wide range of employers."

According to the ONS - Office for National Statistics - around 1,500 people aged 16 and over in North Norfolk were unemployed in the year ending March 2023 - a rate of 3.2pc. The equivalent national figure was 3.6pc.

The fair will take place on Friday, October 20 from 9am-midday.
