"You can also find out how to get training to improve your chances of finding work, get expert advice on starting your own business and update your CV."
The event will run from 9.30am to 1pm. It has been organised in conjunction with the Brigg 2020 Vision Group and MP Andrew Percy.
Employers including Apollo Recruitment, Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort and Crownship Developments will be attending the fair.
North Lindsey College will also be represented, as well as the Wheels2Work transport scheme. There will also be advice for businesses about funding available for business growth, apprenticeships and employment. And job-seekers will be able to pick up tips on CVs, interview techniques and self-employment.
Mr Percy said: "I'm really pleased to be supporting this recruitment event in conjunction with Jobcentre Plus.
"I hope as many people as possible attend to benefit from the employment advice.
"I recognise the importance of holding these events locally to assist those looking for work. While some of these employers may be hiring now, the focus of this event is improving skills and networking with local businesses. There will be advice from employers and the Jobcentre so whether you're looking for work now or in the future, get registered and come on down."
