The final countdown is under way to the third Leeds Digital Job Fair – and organisers say the event should be bigger and better than ever.

More than 50 employers are due to have a presence at the fair, which is taking place at the First Direct Arena on Friday, April 28.

The event was last held in October, attracting more than 2,000 people keen to find out about digital and tech job opportunities in the city.

And, judging by the numbers who have already signed up to register this time around, next month’s fair is on course to beat that figure.

The event is being organised by Amy De-Balsi, founder of online jobs board Herd, with support from LeedsBID, Leeds City Council, Leeds Beckett University and the arena.

Ms De-Balsi said: “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 shortly be announcing some of the biggest names, each with a wide array of vacancies to be filled.

“With more than five weeks to go, the number of registered attendees is also well ahead of where we have been at this stage before previous events.”

Students or jobseekers who want to sign up for the fair, meanwhile, are asked to visit

Next month’s event is part of the Leeds International Festival, a celebration of music, moving image and technology.
