Employers can showcase vacancies to relevant job seekers through a virtual stand, and connect to promising individuals in a real-time environment. Proven a popular platform with both employers and job seekers alike, the 11-day fair will take place from February 18 until March 1.
With great online features such as chat and video technology, businesses can bring to life their vacancies while job seekers have the opportunity to really show off their skills and expertise to help them land their next job.
A wide range of employers will be attending to suit every candidate’s needs – great businesses already booked to attend include Ikea, the Hesley Group and Victoria’s Secret.
The pre-registration process will ensure that only the most motivated job seekers attend the fair, while guaranteeing registrants entry to the event.

Promotions of the fair will appear not only on Jobstoday.co.uk but also in all Johnston Press publications expanding the marketing reach of all participating businesses to the 14 million people in the network, and ensuring they fill their vacancy with the ideal person.
Joanne Harwood, group category manager at Johnston Press, said: “We previously ran two very successful Virtual Careers Fairs last year focusing on the health care and customer service and sales sectors, so we are extremely keen to help candidates and employers connect again all over the country.
“This time we’re running a national fair to include all sectors and businesses so that we are able to offer something for everyone.
“The fair will help great employers connect to local job seekers who are really committed to finding a new job and vice versa. We wish everyone the best of luck.”
