West Suffolk College- Jobs Fair and Apprenticeship Information Event

Local Links visited West Suffolk College last month for their Jobs Fair and Apprenticeship Information Event. This attracted a large number of young people and job seekers to view the dozens of employers' stands. Many of these visitors have little or no access to a car and feel that they are limited in the jobs or apprenticeships they can apply for. It was nice to be able to tell people what travel options that they do have in Bury St Edmunds, and in doing so, open up some more possibilities for them.
