Councillor Kevin Cranney, Chair of Hartlepool Borough Council’s Regeneration Services Committee, said: “The Council has an on-going commitment to get people into good quality employment or training.

“Similar previous events have proved to be really successful and I expect this to be the case again.

“The fair is a terrific opportunity to meet and talk to employers who currently have jobs on offer and I would urge people to call in.”
