Job hunters will be able to find the recruitment fair in Unit 3a at Fosse Park North (adjacent to Regatta), where they’ll have the chance to talk to employers and apply for vacancies, in both the retail and hospitality industries.

Current vacancies are available across Fosse Park, with 16 available at Next, 25 at Primark and six at the site’s Boots store.

Marks and Spencer has two hospitality jobs available, and there will be 40 retail vacancies to fill at the park’s soon-to-open ‘Nike Unite’ store.

The 10,000 sq ft store is set to open at the end of May.

An advert posted online looking for a Sales Associate, says: “As our Nike Store Athlete (Sales Associate) your mission will be to deliver a premium consumer experience by demonstrating the expertise to navigate through individual needs and providing a complete solution through Nike products and services to give consumers what they need to connect, train, and compete with the knowledge to achieve their goals.

“A career in Nike Retail demands creativity and ambition and offers the opportunity to grow with some of the best athletes, teammates and retail partners in the industry”.

Roles in hospitality include 14 at the recently-opened Volpo Lounge, five at Grounded Kitchen, four at Fattoush and five at Isha Patisserie.

The event is part of The Crown Estate’s national employment skills and training programme that provides tailored support to businesses and jobseekers.

Adrian Young, Centre Director at Fosse Park, said “We’re really pleased to be hosting our recruitment event at Fosse Park, following the success of the last event back in October.

“Once again there is a range of jobs and careers available at Fosse Park, and it’s a great opportunity for employers and potential employees to meet in person before applying for any of the live vacancies available. All candidates need to bring is an up-to-date copy of their CV and ID with them. Good customer service is a really key part of the Fosse Park experience, and we look forward to meeting some great new candidates.”
