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

“I’m delighted that Leeds City Council is once again hosting the Apprenticeship Recruitment Fair.

“The event is extremely popular – last year saw over 6,500 attendees through the doors – and the feedback from visitors and exhibitors alike is always extremely positive.

“As ever we have a number of fantastic businesses who will have real vacancies. I’m pleased that we are also introducing a Help Zone for the first time which will have a range of partners on hand to be able to provide support”

Leeds Apprenticeship Recruitment Fair is for anyone considering an apprenticeship now or in the future.
