‘Madness’: Stallholders amazed by numbers at Redbridge Jobs and Training Fair
Stallholders at yesterday’s Redbridge Jobs and Training Fair were amazed by the amount of visitors to the event.
People packed into Redbridge town hall to see the vacancies and courses on offer and were queuing outside the building by noon.
One worker from Sainsbury’s in Newbury Park said the supermarket’s stall had been “manic”.
Val, who did not want her second name printed, said: “I feel a bit like Posh Spice, so many people have been coming up to me.”
The stall was offering advice and information on Sainsbury’s careers and qualifications offered to employees.
