We’ve been helping people find their ideal career by providing free transport to a special event for job seekers.
Hosted by local MP, Jessica Lee, the Erewash Jobs Fair at the Novotel hotel in Long Eaton brought together employers from across the region.

Aimed at school leavers, older people looking for a change of career and anyone who is currently unemployed, the event attracted hundreds of visitors, many of them taking advantage of free travel on my15 and indigo services.
As well as learning about opportunities at major companies such as Bombardier, Rolls-Royce and Wetherspoon, visitors were able to discover the best way to get to work once they have landed a job.
Alex Hornby, Commercial Director, explained: “Commuting is often a major consideration for job seekers and the event gave us a chance to highlight our services and a wide range of offers to make travelling to work easy and affordable.
“We were also delighted to be able to help so many talented people get to the jobs fair, and it was fantastic to see so many of them taking the first step towards a rewarding career.”
Jessica Lee MP commented: “I would like to thank trent barton for providing free transport for my Jobs Fair; it was of great benefit to those travelling from across Erewash. Also thanks to trent barton for enthusiastically participating in the day and exhibiting at the event.”
“I am delighted that 937 people attended the Erewash Jobs Fair. I spoke to many people during the day who had either secured contacts with businesses looking to recruit, been offered an interview with a firms or even, in some cases, offer of an actual job. This is excellent news and has convinced me that this may have been the first, but will not be the last Jobs Fair that I will organise in Erewash.”
