“The aim of the fair is to give people the opportunity to meet employers, view live vacancies available in Bolton, while learning how best to go about securing interviews and, beyond that, a job. I’m really looking forward to this year’s fair and hope that Bolton residents, who are looking for work, will take the opportunity to quiz our experts.”
