Those present will include; Marks and Spencer; Debenhams; Nando’s; Primark; McDonalds; 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.
