Ishaq Kazi, Event Organiser and Programmes Manager at Marsh Farm Futures, said:” My thanks to all the exhibitors who have taken the time to be part of this event. This is part of Marsh Farm Futures’ commitment to assisting in offering sustainable employment opportunities to not only local residents but Lutonians as a whole. The job market has had an upward turn meaning that more people are now in employment but there are still quite a number of opportunities for jobs, business start-ups, apprenticeships and training.
