Andy Fox is the General Manager at Cedar Tree Farm, a new restaurant opening in Cardiff.
He is looking to recruit 100 workers and says there was a 'fantastic response' from jobseekers at the jobs fair, particularly from people looking for extra work to boost their income.
"A lot of people come in looking for part-time work," he said. "Obviously people have other jobs; they want a bit of extra money."
