One of the UK’s leading cinema chains, Cineworld, is planning a major recruitment drive ahead of the opening of a new 11-screen cinema in Leeds.

The cinema, which is located at the White Rose shopping centre, is set to open its doors in November and will create up to 60 jobs.

In a bid to fill roles, Cineworld is hosting an open day for prospective employees on Saturday, September 16.

Candidates are encouraged to attend the recruitment session, taking place at the Village Hotel Leeds South, between 10am and 6pm.

All roles are on either a part or full-time basis. The recruitment day will also offer visitors the opportunity to find out more about careers at Cineworld, as well as ask company staff questions and apply directly.
