The first few stalls for the 2017 Leeds Hidden Talents Employment Fair have now been confirmed. They are split into four specific areas – employers, steps to employment, support and self-employment. Here is who we have for this year’s event so far:
To date, we have four employers confirmed to appear at this year’s event. Construction firm Carillion, who have a number of employees in Leeds, are back after appearing at last year’s event. Also coming back are KPMG, the accountancy firm who have a large city centre office.
New to the event are John Lewis, the retailer whose flagship store in Victoria Gate is actively recruiting. Finally, Emovis, who work on the IT behind road toll systems, are also new to Hidden Talents.
Steps to employment
The National Careers Service (NCS) and Voluntary Action Leeds (VAL) are at Hidden Talents for the first time. The NCS are also running a workshop on CV building, whilst VAL will be promoting voluntary roles across Leeds. We Care Academy, who are providing apprenticeships for care roles, are also coming to the St George’s Centre.
Back for the second staging of our event, the Prince’s Trust will be there to offer advice on areas such as self-employment and apprenticeships.
Groups providing in-work support will be present too. The Disability Employment Advisor (DEA) team for Leeds will have a stall, as will representatives of the Access to Work scheme.
More stalls are to be announced in due course. For more information, please visit the 2017: Stalls page of our website.
