A careers fair is coming to Birmingham city centre today.

Birmingham has been selected for a visit from the summer roadshow by The National Careers Service because they say almost a quarter of people (23.2%) in the city haven't sought careers advice for more than 10-years.

Anyone can go to Chamberlain square to get advice.

They're particularly interested in getting young people in to talk to them ahead of A-Level exam results due later this week

The National Careers Service offer free advice on jobs, skills and training.

I’m looking forward to meeting a whole range of people at the van: whether you’re a youngster awaiting your exam results this summer, a mum returning to the workplace, or have had to face redundancy my colleagues and I can help you to look at your options and make sure you have the right advice at the right time.

– Tracey Bell, a careers adviser from Birmingham
