The One Step Foundation is the brain child of the late Sean O’Brien, a well respected local businessman. It is now run in Sean’s memory as a not-for-profit organisation, to inspire young people and support the community.
The Foundation is best known for our informative but fun Somerset Skills & Careers Fair, held annually since 2013 to help inspire young people to achieve their potential. Always free to attend, the Somerset Skills & Careers Fair is the most sizeable and interactive of its type in the South West, held each October.
The One Step Foundation Careers Fair outlines the options, opportunities and career pathways available to school/college leavers, bringing students together with the organisations and establishments who can make this happen.
In 2016 we introduced an afternoon slot open to the public looking for a change in career. Live vacancies from exhibitors were displayed in one central area and the afternoon proved successful for both visitors and exhibitors so will now be a regular feature.
2017 is the fifth anniversary for the event and promises to attract much attention.
