Many of the employers there will have live vacancies so pupils are encouraged to take along multiple copies of their CVs and approach employers so that they can find out more and leave their details with the employers. There will also be lots of SDS staff there to provide advice and guidance throughout the event.

This is a great opportunity to meet employers and find out more about potential pathways.
