Opps Fair asks industry professionals and role models to talk to and show your children about the exciting career opportunities in and around Portsmouth. Opps Fair is at Guildhall Portsmouth on Saturday 18th October 2014 from 10am until 3pm.

What is the Opps Fair

Now in its fourth year, the Opps Fair is aimed at raising the aspirations and expectations of young people by getting them excited about living and working in the City. We invite thousands of children to come along with their friends and family to join in some interactive sessions and workshops whilst learning about different pathways into careers and get practical advice.
