On Tuesday 11th October from 4 pm-7 pm, Palace for Life is hosting an opportunity fair at Selhurst Park for young south Londoners, giving them the chance to speak with and connect with local businesses, take part in live discussions and visit training, education, and employment stalls.

The first of its kind for Palace for Life, the Made in south London opportunity fair is a chance for 16-25-year-olds to find out more about employment opportunities in the local area, with businesses and education and training organisations such as the London Fire Brigade, HSBC, the NHS as well as a number of universities.

The fair is open to all from 4 pm – 7 pm on Tuesday 11th October. 

In partnership with Croydon Council, Uni Connect, and the South London Partnership, the opportunity fair will cover a range of topics for live discussion, from Crime and Prevention to Employability, with a panel, hosted by academics from the London South Bank University, leading experts in green technology and Go2Games.

With so many local organisations coming together in one place, the Made in south London opportunity fair will have something to suit everybody, with employment stalls from the sports, retail, technology, banking worlds, and more. Training stalls will also be available, including football coaching courses, security training – run by the club – and digital, social, personal, and resilience training. Please find a full list of employment and training stalls below.

Our Palace for Life Playmakers, who are a group of industry professionals willing to support youngsters with their specific expertise, will also be at Selhurst Park, taking part in speed networking – offering advice to young people who may be interested in a job in one of the Playmaker’s fields of work, including law, television and media and much more.
