Retailers like London City Airport and McDonalds will be recruiting at the Redbridge Council’s annual jobs fair in two weeks time.

Over 50 employers from businesses in the borough to major private and public sector organisations will be on the lookout for new talent.

The jobs fair will take place at the town hall, in High Road, on Thursday September 14 from 11am to 3pm.

Exhibitors include construction firm Durkan, Moorfields Eye Hospital, recruitment agency Adecco, Fire Brigade, London City Airport and ISS Catering.
