Employers needed for Leicestershire’s largest ever careers networking event

Tue 23rd August, 2016 by Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership

The Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) is looking for local employers to be part of the largest careers networking event ever to take place in Leicestershire.

To register, please follow the link:

The event is taking place as part of the Leicester Business Festival (LBF) on Friday 4th November 2016 at Leicester Racecourse and is based on a ‘speed networking’ concept. We anticipate around 500 young people aged 13-16 from local schools will have the opportunity to talk to employers from the following business sectors:

• Textile Manufacturing

• Food and Drinks Manufacturing

• Logistics and Distribution

• Tourism and Hospitality

• Creative Industries

• Professional and Financial Services

• Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering

• Sport and Health

We need employers in these sectors who are passionate about their business to donate half a day of their time to talk to young people about working in their industry.

All business volunteers will receive a VIP invite for lunch and to attend the LBF Celebration and Closing event, which will follow immediately after.

For further information about this event, contact Jay Lad on 0116 454 4304 or email
