Connecting today’s businesses with tomorrow’s talent

In 2023, Leeds once again hosted the largest Digital Careers Fair in the North.

Delivered by Leeds City Council Employment & Skills Service, the fair attracted over 4000 visitors; from school students to graduates, as well as career changers, to meet with businesses from a range of sub sectors in digital and tech.

Exhibitors were invited to connect with emerging talent at this pivotal event to inspire individuals not currently working in digital or tech, providing a place for people to explore diverse career paths and training courses, and to connect emerging talent with opportunities available within our growing digital landscape. 

Amongst the 52 exhibitors gathered in Leeds first direct arena were support organisation such as BYP, WiLD and Leeds Autism Services, providing support and guidance to ensure that everyone recognises that there is a place from them in the digital and tech sector.

Due to the tireless effort by the team, we are delighted to share that LDCF23 won the Equality Diversity & Inclusivity award at the Leeds Digital Festival Awards in 2023, which recognises innovations and contributions from regional tech and digital businesses. 

As we continue to look to the future, we welcome you to be part of connecting with talented individuals, spotting future talent, showcasing your company, and contributing to the growth of the digital sector in Leeds.
