LIF includes bigger and better Leeds Digital Jobs Fair

Leeds Digital Job Fair 3.0 looks set to eclipse previous attendance records when employers and tech professionals come together again for the event later this month.

In a major boost for organisers Herd, the fair at First Direct Arena on Friday, 28th April will form part of the inaugural Leeds International Festival running from 22-30 April with a focus on three main strands: music, moving image and technology.

Amy De-Balsi – founder of online jobs board Herd, which has put the event together with support from LeedsBID, Leeds City Council, Leeds Beckett University and First Direct Arena – said she expects the gathering to be bigger and better than ever.

“The first two Leeds Digital Job Fairs were incredibly successful, but we must continue to push the boundaries to accurately reflect the dynamism of the city’s digital and tech sector.  We expect more than 50 employers to be exhibiting on the day and we will be shortly be announcing some of the biggest names, each with a wide array of vacancies to be filled. “

“Being part of the first ever Leeds International Festival is a huge seal of approval for us and a recognition of the important role the Leeds Digital Job Fair now plays.”

Andrew Cooper, chairman of Leeds International Festival and LeedsBID chief executive, said: “The Leeds Digital Jobs Fair is an integral part of the promotion of a city which is at the forefront of the skills agenda in the tech, creative and digital sectors.”
