poster smallDacorum Careers Fair – Wednesday 24th October 2018


Shendish Manor Hotel, London Road, Apsley, HP3 0AA                     




About this event:

This interactive event brings students from the nine mainstream Dacorum schools, in direct contact with employers and training providers in one venue with the overall aim of:

  • Helping young people gain meaningful encounters with employers
  • Teaching young people about a variety of local jobs and industries
  • Educating students about the varied routes into work
  • Enabling teachers and school staff to interact and network with employers

Employer/Exhibitor guidelines:

The event targets students in Y11 and Y12 (ages 15-17)

We encourage you to bring along employees who will enjoy getting out from behind the stand, engaging with the young people, and talking to Teachers and Careers Leads too

Where at all possible, please have an interactive activity on your stand - please inform us if you need power or have any other requirements for your stand

We would like Employers/Exhibitors to please talk about the sector your company represents as well as your specific company – this helps young people to understand the breadth of jobs both within your company and the sector as a whole, e.g. the building sector doesn’t just employ building/manual roles, they also employ marketeers, accountants, IT staff, etc., etc.

Employers/Exhibitors are asked for a £25 suggested contribution to the fair – Shendish Manor have kindly donated their venue free of charge for the Fair, the nominal charge for stands enables us to provide refreshments for Employers throughout the day as well as subsidising the marketing and promotional materials for the event

The Organisers

This event is led by the team of Enterprise Advisers who support the participating Dacorum schools. An Enterprise Adviser is a business volunteer who supports an individual school to achieve the Gatsby Benchmarks which, in turn, help develop a school’s overall careers programme.  The Enterprise Adviser Network is a national programme owned by The Careers and Enterprise Company, which in Hertfordshire is managed jointly by Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and YC Hertfordshire.   For more information see here  This is the first event of its kind created by Enterprise Advisers.  This event is supported by Connect Dacorum and Dacorum Borough Council.

We are currently sorting out the booking link, size of area available, and finer details and as soon as I have that I will update you. If you would like to book a stand please let me have the details of who will be the main contact (including email and telephone number), what industry area your company is in, what types of roles you would be looking for, how many people would be coming from your organisation (maximum 2).
