2,000 students and young people were expected to visit Leeds' Apprenticeship Hub's annual Apprenticeship Fair held at the First Direct Arena last night.
However, it was a massive success with just over 5000 people coming through the doors over the 3 hour period. This more than tripled the recorded attendance figure of 2015.
Howard Civil Engineering were there, represented by Andy Rafton, SHEQ and Training Manager, and Lucie Jones, Pre Contracts Manager, advertising 4 apprenticeships. General Construction Oerative, Formwork Joiner, Engineer and Accounts Assistant.
We were overwhelmed by the interest in our stand and the construction industry as a whole and so pleased at the quality of many of the candidates. They were confident, eloquent and polite and were fine ambassadors for the colleges and schools at which they were studying.
With at least fourty expressions of genuine interest and many CVs to read we are confident we'll be filling our vacancies from these upcoming Leeds young people.
