Kim Lloyd, a job seeker who has recently experienced redundancy, shared her perspective on the event: "Attending the DWP 50 Plus Jobs Fair at Lewisham College has been exceptionally beneficial for me. It's been an informative experience for me to learn more about the potential roles available and the potential career paths in various industries. I'm truly thankful for the support and interest demonstrated by the service providers. The event holds great significance for the local community, and I'm keenly interested in pursuing a career in Teaching."

Carole Perimode, from Mulalley, said: "Today has been a highly productive day for us. We have had the pleasure of meeting exceptional candidates at the event who have demonstrated a keen interest in joining our team. At present, we have an active vacancy for a Labourer, which not only benefits our company but also contributes to the growth and development of the local community. Moreover, we offer courses in manual handling and apprenticeships, further highlighting our commitment to skill development and community engagement."

Lewisham College was fully committed to ensuring that attendees were aware of the employment and educational prospects available within the College.

Jamie Stevenson, Principal at Lewisham College, said: "We are delighted to have welcomed the Department for Work and Pensions and the diverse array of employers to our College today. They have shared valuable information on career pathways, employment opportunities, and apprenticeships with our community members.  

"Partnering with the Department for Work and Pensions has been a crucial step for Lewisham College in bringing employment opportunities, career pathways, and apprenticeships to our local community. We are proud to have played a part in empowering adults to achieve their goals and aspirations, this event has been a significant milestone in our commitment towards skill development of our community, and we look forward to continuing such partnerships to secure more roles and apprenticeships for our community."
