Others due to offer job and training include Lloyds Bank, West Midlands Police, the NHS, Dudley Council, McDonald's and the Army.

Mr Wood says: “Hosting my annual Jobs & Skills Fair is always a highlight of the calendar for me because we know how much of a difference meaningful employment can make to a person’s life.

“There are a wide range of employers attending, as well as all of the local colleges and lots of other training providers – so I really do hope anyone looking for a new challenge will be able to make it on the day to find out more.”

The event will be held

The free event will be held in the amphitheatre space outside M&Son the Lower Mall inside the Merry Hill centre from11am-3pm.

It is the ninth jobs fairs that the Conservative MP has organised since he was elected in eight years ago.
