MP's Jobs Fair

Young people across the city, and some from further afield, had the opportunity to meet with employers and training providers at a job fair organised by the city's MPs.

The event was held at the Buszy in Central Milton Keynes by Mark Lancaster and Iain Stewart to link local employers with young people looking for work and apprenticeships.

Employers like Home Retail Group, Santander, Railcare, Network Rail, Boeing Defence, Whitbread and Mirus IT Solutions were some of the organisations on hand to help young people in their search for jobs.

Milton Keynes South MP Iain Stewart said: "It is welcome that unemployment figures are falling and that MK is set to see the fastest economic growth on the country, but we must not be complacent. We must ensure that young people in the city not only have jobs, but also have the relevant skills to meet the requirements of businesses relocating to the city."

Milton Keynes North MP Mark Lancaster said: "Milton Keynes economy is one of the leading lights in the country and while total unemployment is low, youth unemployment is a concern. With so many big businesses based in the city, Iain and I are determined to make sure young job seekers know where to look and hope the jobs fair will go some way in helping young people come face to face with potential employers."

The job fair was organised in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, Milton Keynes College, Connexions and Milton Keynes Council
