They offered career advice and spoke to pupils about what experience they may need for roles at their respective companies.

Forest pupils from years 10 to 12 visited the fair during the afternoon, while over 350 external pupils from 14 local schools also attended the fair meaning over the four hours over 800 pupils passed through the event.

The fair will take place again next year on Thursday 25 January 2018.
