Who are Job Centre Plus
Jobcentre Plus is a service for people of working age and gives help and advice on jobs and training for people who can work and the right financial help for those who cannot. Their Personal Advisers offer active help to find work to meet individual needs.
Jobcentre Plus is also part of a network of public Employment Services that belong to the European Employment Services (EURES). This is a partnership of the European Economic Area (EEA) countries that enables the exchange of vacancies and information on living and working conditions abroad in Europe.

Jobcentre Plus will be introduced everywhere by 2006. If you live outside these areas your local Jobcentre or social security office, both of which are part of the Jobcentre Plus network, will be able to help. If you are looking for work or claiming benefit as unemployed, you should contact your local Jobcentre. For other benefits, including the Social Fund, you should contact your social security office.
Local Events - Information about Jobsfairs
As part of Job Centre Plus's commitment to provide the highest level of service to jobseekers and employers, they arrange frequent Jobsfairs throughout the various regions.
These Jobsfairs give jobseekers the chance to talk directly to employers about the opportunities they have available, and for employers to give out application forms or interview potential employees at the event.
Everyone is welcome to Jobsfairs - you do not have to be registered unemployed to visit one. If you are thinking of returning to work after a period of absence, if you are looking for a part-time job or considering a career change, you are welcome to go along and see what's available.
