Raising the profile of Manufacturing in Leeds.

Competition for people and talent has never been more intense, with employers across all sectors reporting recruitment and retention as the number one challenge they face. Developing skills for the future and attracting young people into manufacturing is therefore more important than ever if the sector is to continue to thrive and prosper in West Yorkshire.

Leeds Manufacturing Festival aims to raise the profile of the city’s manufacturing sector, promote the wide range of opportunities that careers in manufacturing and engineering present and build closer relationships between employers, school and colleges in Leeds to help bring the next generation into manufacturing.
