Prowse & Co.’s latest event – a careers exhibition – attracted more than 225 job seekers, commuters, students and parents in April. They met with 45 employers based on the Manor Royal Business District who were showcasing their job vacancies, careers and training opportunities.
The event was conceived and organised by Prowse & Co for the Manor Royal BID and sponsored by financial services company B&CE, recently named Employer of the Year at the Sussex Business Awards. Manor Royal Business District is adjacent to London Gatwick Airport and is one of the South East's premier mixed activity employment hubs.
Situated on the Sussex and Surrey county borders, Manor Royal covers an area of 240 hectares and is home to over 600 businesses generating 30,000 jobs - a popular choice for a diverse range of occupiers, including a host of blue-chip global brands. Exhibitors at the event included Virgin Atlantic, Varian Medical Systems, the South East Coast Ambulance Service, L3 Aviation among others.
Most of the companies participating had full-time and part-time job vacancies on offer across a wide range of roles from IT, driving and administration through to medical careers. People were also able to gain job search advice and careers information by attending one of four free seminars and informally meeting HR teams.
Joanne Rogers, Managing Director of Prowse & Co. said: “Our aim was to create a free event which enabled local people of all ages to discover more about employment opportunities available on Manor Royal Business District.
