“The Jobs Fair is the latest in a series of events organised by myself & Dawn Bowden AM to offer assistance, advice or support to our constituents. I am extremely pleased with the number of employers, training providers and partner organisations that are involved and I am particularly grateful to Job Centre Plus and Caerphilly CBC Communities First for their support in planning the event.
This event is a great opportunity for local people to get a flavour of some of the Job vacancies that exist locally and I hope that as many people as possible will attend to see what is on offer.”

“I am pleased to take the opportunity to jointly host a Jobs Fair with Gerald Jones MP. Alongside the encouraging involvement of a number of key organisations, I am delighted that I have already been contacted by constituents who are looking forward to attending, and have welcomed this initiative supporting their efforts to secure local employment”.
