At the event, 700 students from six secondary schools in Huntingdonshire visited 88 booths and activities to learn about future career opportunities on their doorstep.

Organized by EDGE – Huntingdonshire's Jobs and Skills Facilitator – the event brought together representatives from the fields of civil engineering and construction, engineering and electrical engineering, finance and banking, animal welfare, armed forces and health and social care.

The event provided hands-on opportunities to try out tasks and get a feel for some of the locally hired jobs, as well as support and advice on the training and skills needed to get into it.

The most popular among the activities was the "Pit Stop" at the Cambridge Regional College, which gives students an insight into the various professions and skills of Formula One racing. These sat next to the local company Titan Motorsport and announced the available training opportunities.
