Our Partners said...

  • Croydon CouncilCroydon CouncilProcurement Manager

    "From a procurement prospective it’s good to meet so many local suppliers both SMEs and the larger suppliers. It helps us to put a face to the name and really get to understand and develop what companies can offer the Council. It is also reassuring to see those companies that are making a positive impact and delivering social value benefits."

  • City of London CorporationResponsible Procurement Manager

    "From my perspective, it was great to be in the same room as so many people who want to drive change, create jobs and support smaller businesses. I made really useful connections at the event and look forward to attending next year."

  • Family MosaicFamily MosaicEmployment and Skills Manager

    "Family Mosaic have supported the London Jobs Fair South since it started in 2012. This is exactly the kind of event we like to be involved in as it covers so many areas that a Housing Association can benefit from, including excellent networking opportunities, pre-arranged meetings with suppliers and potential suppliers to the public sector, and at the core, support and provision for our residents. A wide range of employer’s/training providers and potential business partners all under one roof, make it a special event that supports the local community through partnership working. Over the years we have seen many positive outcomes from the event and this year has been no exception with one resident accessing an apprenticeship with Liftec and, resulting from post event work, one resident accessing a work trial with PH Jones, that has inspired him to make a career change. We plan to continue giving our support to such a worthy venture that benefits all involved."
