"Every year the presence of firms from elsewhere in Tendring grows and grows, and I am pleased to see so many Harwich-based companies looking for new employees.

"This is a real indicator of how businesses in the area are looking to expand, and how Harwich and north Tendring is growing economically.

"But to push that growth forward we need people to fill those jobs – so come down to the fair and see what new career awaits you."
