20 July 2023

Young people can find out more about future career opportunities at a new fair in August.

The Future You Careers Event on 17 August is being hosted by Peterborough City Council, The Department of Work and Pensions and ARU Peterborough.

Employers including McCormick, Morgan Sindall, Anglian Water, Cross Keys Homes, Amazon, NHS and Bauer Media will be giving out advice and talking to attendees at the event, at Sand Martin House on Fletton Quays.

Aimed at under-24s, there will be demonstrations by an experienced lecturer from ARU Peterborough in gaming, AR, AI and VR, as well as an interactive climbing wall courtesy of the Armed Forces.

The National Careers Service will be on hand, and there will be a number of training room activities, as well as free pizza for those attending.

Cllr Lynne Ayres, Cabinet member for Children's Services, Education, Skills and University, said: “This is a new event for Peterborough and will look at how to use some modern tools such as AI and VR, which are rapidly becoming vital parts of an employee’s skillset.

“We have a number of established employers attending who have a strong presence in our city, and they will no doubt have plenty of advice for young people who are looking to start their careers.”

The event will run from 10am to 2pm on 17 August and is free. For more information click here:
