The first Dumfries & Galloway Business Expo is taking place at Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries on Tuesday 19th April from 10am – 6pm. Organised by CEIS Dumfries & Galloway and sponsored by the University of the West of Scotland, Scottish Qualifications Authority and DG Employment TAP.

With free entry to the public, there will be over 50 businesses selling their products and services to other businesses and members of the public. Come along and see what Dumfries and Galloway has to offer and support your local business community by buying local.

Are you looking for work or are you leaving College or University and planning the start of your career? Then come and visit our Job Fairs which are running from 11am – 2pm on the day. If you are a student or graduate looking for employment, then the FE/HE Job Fair is for you with businesses specifically looking to fill graduate level positions.

The All-Age Job Fair will have vacancies for all ages and levels of experience. Are you a member of the public looking for employment or leaving school soon and looking to start work? Then this event is for you.

With a wide variety of businesses looking to recruit at each of the Job Fairs this is an ideal opportunity to see what career opportunities are available in Dumfries and Galloway. Bring along your CV and speak to local businesses about what they are looking for and what skills or experience you can offer.

Amanda Hannah, Business Services Adviser at CEIS Dumfries & Galloway said

“We are really excited to be able to organise the Dumfries & Galloway Business Expo for the first time. We want to highlight the great businesses that we have here on our doorstep and encourage and promote the importance of buying and sourcing services locally.

“The Job Fairs taking place on the day are also an ideal opportunity to show job seekers that you don’t have to leave the region and move to the central belt to find a successful career. There are so many opportunities here in our region to flourish and develop a rewarding career. It’s just being aware of the opportunities out there and we hope we can help achieve this through this event.”
