A WEST Yorkshire MP is hosting a jobs fair next month.

Kim Leadbeater, Labour MP for Batley and Spen, will hold the event upstairs at Tesco Extra, on Bradford Road, Batley, between 10am and 4pm on October 26.

She said: "I'm very pleased to be holding this, my third jobs fair.

"Drop by to speak to dozens of businesses and employers who are recruiting locally.

"Everyone is welcome regardless of age, qualifications or experience."

For more information about the jobs fair, people can email: kim.leadbeater.mp@parliament.uk

Ms Leadbeater was elected as MP for Batley and Spen following a closely-fought by-election in July 2021, with a 323-vote majority.

Her sister Jo Cox, the former Labour MP for Batley and Spen, was sadly murdered in Birstall in June 2016.
