A Christmas jobs fair takes place at Meadowhall today with dozens of stores looking for seasonal workers.

Last year’s event saw over 1,000 hopefuls show up and this year there are more than 2,000 jobs on offer.

The event takes place today - Wednesday - in the Oasis Courtyard.

Some of the centre’s most popular retail brands and prospective employers will be there.

Applicants will be able to find out more about the roles available and even apply for jobs on the spot.

Darren Pearce, Meadowhall’s centre director said: “There are currently over 9,000 unemployed people in the city of Sheffield - we feel our jobs’ fair can really help to provide thousands of these people with a fantastic opportunity - over 40 of our retailers will be there today to fill their seasonal vacancies.”

The jobs fair will run from 10am to 6pm and willing candidates are being asked to bring along copies of their CV and ‘their best smile’.
