More than 30 exhibitors


The COMPASS Jobs Fair, Birmingham 2017 featured more than 30 exhibitors from local authorities, universities, independent providers and voluntary sector organisations.

As the major social work and social care recruitment event in the West Midlands this gives visitors the opportunity to meet colleagues and potential employers face-to-face. It is viewed as an integral part of the annual social work diary, providing a central focus for national and regional organisations.

Work is already beginning on a great event for next year with an exciting conference programme, but last year's programme can be seen below:
