Hungerford Trade Showcase to become an annual event?

A highly successful Hungerford Trade Showcase took place at John O’Gaunt School on Friday 13th October. The idea came from Councillor Martin Crane, former Mayor of Hungerford and currently the chair of HTC Tourism and Economy Committee, who wanted to show pupils and residents of Hungerford the wide and diverse organisations that are based in and near the town and the opportunities that they can offer local residents.

These companies are the backbone of Hungerford’s economy,” Martin Crane explained. “Their success benefits Hungerford. Furthermore, as companies grow – as most of these companies are doing – new job opportunities emerge. I believe it’s in everyone’s interests that they start a recruitment locally rather than automatically believe that they should search further afield.”

The event, jointly organised by Hungerford Town Council and John O’Gaunt School, was opened by Dr Christina Hill-Williams, the Deputy Lieutenant of Berkshire. In her opening speech Dr Hill-Williams said, “It had opened her eyes to just what Hungerford had in terms of international trading companies.”

Pupils from Year 10 and 11 were given the chance to speak to the companies who attended the event, being able to ask questions and explore different career opportunities. The event was also open to members of the public after 3:30 pm.

Feedback from the attending companies showed that they have found the event well organised and would be happy to attend a similar event next year. The Mayor of Hungerford, Councillor Keith Knight, said, “It would be great to make this an annual event in the town’s diary.”
