Sharron Russell Director for Work & Wellbeing in the Department for Communities said: "The Belfast job fair is a fantastic opportunity for those searching for their first job, changing career, or simply looking for some advice with CV or interview skills. Working in partnership with Belfast City Council allows for a more bespoke and local approach to linking employers with prospective employees. I really would encourage anyone seeking work to come along on the 7th February to see what Belfast has to offer."
