Opening up the future at Opps Fairs

We’re looking forward to attending the annual Opportunities Fair – the Opps Fair 2015 – at Portsmouth Guildhall again in October.
The extravaganza is held for pupils aged 10 to 13 – and their families – to showcase the exciting opportunities and wide range careers on offer in the city when they leave school.
We had a great time last year and we are pleased to be able to join other like-minded businesses at the event this year on Saturday October 10 from 10am to 3pm.
Our expert and friendly staff will be among industry and business professionals manning a stand during the day.
They’ll be on hand to talk about the wide range of expertise, high level qualifications and rewarding careers on offer in property related services – including chartered surveying, structural engineering, architecture, electrical engineering and computer aided design.
They’ll also be able to answer any questions, give practical advice and general careers help.
We enjoy playing our part in helping create a vibrant community and local community, and always enjoy attending such events as the Opportunities Fair.
It will be the fifth annual Opps Fair this year, and it has become a firm fixture in the calendar.
There will be interactive activities and workshops as well as talks, displays, question and answer sessions, entertainment and competitions.
As well as giving youngsters an insight into the myriad careers available, Opps Fair aims to get them excited about living and working in the city.
It is run by the education workstream of Shaping the Future of Portsmouth along with the Education Business Partnership South Ltd Portsmouth, and is funded by Portsmouth City Council.
Don’t forget to come and say hello to us on our stand. Visit http://oppsfair.com/ for more details and a video of last year’s event.
You can also tweet us at @McAndrewMartin if you’re going – or let us know on Facebook under McAndrew Martin.
