Some of Morley’s best-known firms will be looking for local talent at a special jobs and skills fair tomorrow.

Organised by Conservative parliamentary candidate for Morley and Outwood, Andrea Jenkyns, the fair will take place at Morley Town Hall from 10am-2pm on Tuesday October 14 and has attracted some of the area’s biggest businesses. 
The fair will be opened by Sir Rodney Walker, chair of the UK Tour de France Organising Committee. Workshops for jobseekers and businesses will form part of the fair, which will give people looking for work opportunities a chance to find employment. 
Miss Jenkyns said although unemployment is falling nationally and the number of apprenticeships in Morley and Outwood is increasing, she wants to do more to help those looking for work and those looking for workers.
“Although the Conservative-led Government’s long-term economic plan has boosted the economy and helped more people secure a regular pay packet for their families, there is still more to do,” she said.
“The reason I have organised this fair is to bring employers and potential employees face-to-face.
“There are people with the talent to succeed and this fair will bring them into contact with top class employers who can see their skills and help them realise their potential.
“The fair will also help those people find the right career path, such as apprenticeships, and provide them with the skills they need, such as writing a CV, to move forwards.”
Businesses signed up to take part in the fair so far include AWM Ltd and Corecom Consulting, who are sponsoring the event and First Choice Recruitment and Intoo, Sky and Yorkshire Water will also be exhibiting
