A careers fair will be taking place in Norwich this week for jobseekers, students and people interested in getting some training.
The ninth annual Jobs24 Fair will be held at The Forum on Thursday, June 24, and Friday, June 25.
The fair is a chance to find out more about some of Norfolk's employers and comes at a crucial time, with many people still looking for jobs after the redundancies of the economic crisis and students facing the tough task of finding their first job in the world of work.
A variety of exhibitors will be available to meet potential candidates, offering help and advice, whether it is to those leaving
school or college, looking for further education, or seeking a change in career.
Some of Norfolk's key businesses will be attending, representing specialist industries from insurance, healthcare, training specialists, recruitment agencies, education and the armed forces.
