Opportunity for Pioneers to Exhibit

Following the huge success of LEAF 2016, where over 1,400 people came through the door looking for work, training or careers advice, we are pleased to announce the date for LEAF 2017, as  Monday 13th November, 9am-4pm, at Magna (Rotherham).  The LEAF (Local Employment and Advisory Forum) event has taken place in Rotherham for the past four years getting bigger and better each year.  For LEAF 2016 there was over 60 businesses exhibiting from across Rotherham covering all the key employment sectors and we are aiming for more this year.  The event also won the Mears Group Community Project of the Year 2016.

The 2017 event will:

  • Help you to recruit staff now or in the future
  • Help you connect with local schools
  • Raise local knowledge of your business
  • Help young people and jobseekers make the right choices about future careers

The morning session of the event will be dedicated to groups attending from our local schools who are considering career opportunities. They will be seeking advice about what you as prospective employers are looking for and what training provision/apprenticeships are available that will provide them with the skills they need to succeed.  The afternoon session will be focused on college leavers and jobseekers, they will be keen to find out about and apply for live vacancies*, identify the skills and qualifications needed for occupations, identify future apprenticeship vacancies and seek advice on available training provision.

We hope you are able to join us in November and make LEAF 2017 a huge success.  If you would like to reserve FREE** exhibition space at the event please email by 22nd September, 2017.  Final exhibitor arrangements will be available in October, but should you require any further information in the meantime please contact me.

Why not be a Patron of the event for just £500? Email for further information on the many benefits of being a LEAF Patron.

We look forward to hearing from you.

* Note – you do not need to have live vacancies to exhibit – just a willingness to share your experiences and inspire people to want to work in your industry.

** Note – there is a small charge for Training Providers and Recruitment Agencies.
