A wide array of Hive members were on display at a wonderful Careers and Jobs Fair at the amazing Blackburn Cathedral in early September.

THOUSANDS of young job seekers got help forging their future as they attended a town centre careers fair.

About 2,000 young people headed to the ‘Blackburn with Darwen is Hiring’ event in Blackburn Cathedral and its grounds.

The fair – the largest such event in the borough – brought work hopefuls face to face with prospective employers and educational establishments.

More than 90 employers, businesses, charities, apprenticeship and education providers were on hand to discuss opportunities.

Students from schools including Blackburn Central High School, The Heights, Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School and Pleckgate High School attended the event and got to speak to potential employers ranging from Thwaites and Euro Garages, to East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.

The event was organised in partnership with Blackburn with Darwen Council, Blackburn College, Hive Business School, Cummins Mellor, Northcote, Lancashire Employment and Skills Executive Partnership and Organic Insurance.
