Leeds Digital Job Fair 4.0, which will take place on 28 February, is hoped to deliver strong candidates for the many ready-to-fill vacancies in the city. Participating employers include DWP Digital, Sky Betting and Gaming, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays.
Amy De-Balsi, owner of online jobs board Herd, said: “The Herd job board has more than 1000 digital and tech jobs available in Leeds right now and that number is growing day by day.
“The Leeds Digital Job Fair 4.0 which will again be held in the main auditorium of the First Direct Arena, also run by Herd, will have 50 exhibitors with over 500 vacancies all available on the day.
“Many of these opportunities will be apprenticeships, enabling people with a keen interest in the digital sector to learn on the job and forge an exciting new career.
One of the supporters of the job fair is Mike Buck, BJSS Head of Delivery Leeds. He said: “We’re thrilled to be once again supporting the Leeds Digital Job Fair. As Yorkshire’s biggest tech event, it provides us with an important opportunity to engage with the talented technologists and graduates that are helping Leeds to shape Britain’s digital future.
“This year, many of our senior people will be attending the Leeds Digital Job Fair, allowing candidates a unique opportunity to hear about career options at BJSS, understand the innovative tools and techniques that we use, and learn about the exciting projects that we deliver.”
