Gareth Johnson, MP for Dartford, said on the jobs fair: “I am delighted to be part of The Bluewater Jobs Fair, now in its sixth year. The Fair is a key employment initiative in matching hopeful candidates with positions at Bluewater, and each year the event goes from strength to strength. The variety of jobs available continues to grow, which creates an even more diverse range of opportunities for local people.

"The number of people who have benefited since the Fair’s inception is a testament to the great work by the team at The Learning Shop and Bluewater. I would like to wish all the hopeful candidates the very best of luck when applying for positions.”

Mr Johnson and Dartford Mayor Rosanna Currans will be visiting the fair on Friday with Robert Goodman, Bluewater's general manager.

Mr Goodman said: "“It is great to be hosting Bluewater’s Jobs Fair for its sixth consecutive year, and to have such a variety of jobs on offer. We look forward to welcoming candidates to the fair, which, for the first time, takes place over two days this year."

The fair has matched 7,050 candidates to jobs at Bluewater since it started.
