A string of high-profile employers will attend a jobs fair at a Leeds shopping centre next week.

The event, organised by Leeds City Council, takes place on Tuesday August 16 at The Point, inside White Rose Shopping Centre, from 10am to 3pm and retailers present will include Marks and Spencer, Debenhams, Primark, Argos and The Fragrance Shop.

Also on offer will be the chance to find out more about apprenticeships and Leeds City College courses; there are 200 vacancies available to apply for via GGV developments at the forthcoming Victoria Gate Casino and an opportunity to find out about positions in Northern Rail.

Morgan Sindall in partnership with Construction Housing Yorkshire will also have training and future employment opportunities as part of the White Rose Shopping Centre extension. For any of the vacancies, people are asked to bring along multiple copies of their CV and leave with employers on the day to apply.

Coun Mohammed Rafique, Leeds City Council’s executive member for employment, skills and opportunity, said: “We undertake a range of initiatives and events with partners to make sure that people of all ages have the chance to find out about the wide range of job opportunities that are available in our city.

“We are delighted to be hosting the event at White Rose Shopping Centre, which will bring together a range of employers offering both part-time and full-time vacancies.”

He added: “We have had a fantastic response from the Leeds public to our previous job fairs, and we are looking forward to seeing another great turnout on August 16.”
