Over the last few years, I have put on a number of local Jobsfairs here in Wyre Forest. These aim to link those looking for work, with employers looking for workers. Twice a year, around 50 employers have offered around 500 jobs to local people and the attendance has been terrific. But as unemployment has come down in the district, there have been fewer and fewer people coming to the Jobsfairs, whilst employers are increasingly unable to fill vacancies. To me, this identified a subtler problem – that there could be a disconnect between schools and employers.
