Engine Room @ LeedsBID hosted its first ever Christmas Jobs Fair, bringing together close to 30 employers, and approximately 350 permanent and temporary retail & hospitality vacancies, all in one place.
The event, held on Wednesday 29th September, provided the perfect opportunity for city centre businesses to recruit additional team members in person and solve festive recruitment needs. Employers who attended the event included Primark, The White Company, Superdrug, Superdry, Schuh, JD Sports, McDonalds, Decathlon, The Queens Hotel, Crown Plaza, Archies, Dakota, Blackhouse and Bibis, to name a few. Leeds City Council Employment and Skills Team was also on hand all day to help support people with CVs.
Businesses’ feedback included it had been a great opportunity to meet potential employees face to face, there had been some strong candidates on the day and that it was good to be able to network once again after many months of being apart from people.
Plans are now being considered for future events.
