Primary Care Skills Show & Job Fair – Key Highlights

We recently completed our series of Essex Primary Care Skills Show & Job Fair events – and we would like to share some of our successes with you!

The series consisted of 5 events in total, in Basildon, Southend, Colchester, Harlow and Chelmsford, throughout March and May. Over 300 individuals pre-registered to attend the fairs.

  • Total of 187 candidates across all 5 fairs
    • 43% were GPs or GPSTs
    • 30% were nursing or allied health candidates
    • 26% were within a non-healthcare, or unknown, role
  • Total of 33 individual exhibitors across all 5 fairs
    • 15 Essex-based GP practices
    • 11 NHS, supporting or other healthcare bodies
    • 5 universities and colleges

5 out of 6 exhibitors who completed our feedback survey rated the events as “Very Good“.

The events were described as useful, interesting and worthwhile.

Several exhibitors commented that they would like to see even more attendees at future fairs. This year, we found that numbers varied between locations and dates – this is one of our key learnings and therefore additional audience generation will be at the heart of future event activity.




Attendees at the job fairs also provided very positive feedback.




Thank you again to all those candidate and partner organisations who were able to join us at the events!
