Local Opportunities

With developments in technology there are now numerous jobs that did not exist 10 years ago.  It is important to keep up to date with what is happening locally, nationally and internationally.  In regard to local opportunities, the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) are leading the way in a number of exciting developments with a range of sectors including space, low carbon, and digital.  Click the buttons below for more information.
