Tenants of the new £53m St James development in Dover town centre will begin a recruitment drive at the Dover Jobs Fair at Dover Town Hall on Thursday, 9 November 2017, taking place from 10am to 3pm. Among those recruiting will be Cineworld, M&S, Next, Costa Coffee, Greggs, Shoezone and Trespass. In total, the St James development is expected to create 500 new jobs.
The Dover Jobs Fair is being organised by Dover District Council and its partners, East Kent College, and Kent Choices which offers advice and information for school leavers.
A wide range of local companies will also be recruiting, from science and engineering, to food production and maritime. There will be advice and information on further and higher education, apprenticeships, and volunteering. Staff from Dover Jobcentre will also be on hand.
Cllr Keith Morris, Leader of Dover District Council, said: "We're delighted to welcome many of the tenants at the St James development to Dover Town Hall on Thursday, 9 November. It will be a great opportunity for people to come and see the job opportunities on offer when St James opens early in 2018.
"I am also delighted that many of the district's largest employers are also supporting the event, and demonstrating the depth of career, apprenticeship and training opportunities available in the Dover district."
