Some of the biggest firms in their fields are set to attend a new careers fair in Romford to make sure that students in the borough have access to the best opportunities.

The Havering Islamic and Cultural Centre (HICC) in Waterloo Road is holding their first careers event on September 22, from 11 - 3pm to provide better access to opportunities in the borough for students.

Umer Sharif, trustee at HICC said: “Our goal is to show the local students how varied careers can be and how they may actually have the skills for something they previously were not sure about.

“Whether students are interested in law, architecture, construction or banking, we have volunteers and representatives from each category.

“Some exhibiting firms will even be offering placements to students who really impress them.”

The event will start with a presentation by Oxford University and HICC on the benefits of university and alternatives with a focus on apprenticeships.

Companies such as PWC, Mullis & Peake solicitors and Ford will also be at the event.
