Councillor Mohammed Rafique, Leeds City Council’s executive member for employment, skills and opportunity said:

“The turnout at last year’s White Rose Shopping Centre jobs fair was absolutely tremendous, and it was brilliant to see 266 people from the event go on to gain meaningful full-time and part-time employment.

“Once again I am delighted to say that a variety of employers are lined up to attend this year’s event, who will be more than happy to discuss the vacancies they have to offer. Our jobs fairs are continuing to move from strength-to-strength, and we look forward to welcoming what I am sure will be another great crowd on August 10.”

Steven Foster, General Manager of White Rose Shopping Centre, said:

“We’re delighted to be hosting the jobs fair here at White Rose once again. With the addition of six new restaurants this summer and an 11-screen cinema coming later this year, there are plenty of employment opportunities in the centre for those across south Leeds and indeed West Yorkshire.

“We’ll look forward to hopefully topping last year’s number of 266 visitors moving into employment following the fair.”
