The Council’s Employment Leeds team has helped employers in Leeds to recruit hundreds of staff with a wide range of skills.
These include administration workers, retail and hospitality staff, construction and computer software specialists for large firms such as John Lewis, Asda and Tesco.
They also include warehouse and factory operatives for smaller businesses such as garment manufacturer Perry Uniform and construction services company Sovereign Air Movement.
Between April 2017 and September 2017 we helped over 200 businesses in Leeds to connect with local communities and recruit the skills they need. To view our progress you can view our

Recruitment made simple
Employment Leeds can give you all the help you need to recruit the right people for your business, whether you’re new to the city or a company that’s already based here. Getting to know and understand your business is the first stage in the process. An individual account manager will be assigned to make a match between your needs and their knowledge of local communities, funding streams and skills providers.
They will help develop job descriptions and employee specifications, draft recruitment adverts and advertise vacancies through social media and our network of community job shops. Your Employment Leeds adviser will also assist with screening candidates, shortlisting and interviews. We can also arrange open days and job fairs.
