EMPLOYMENT support agencies in Huddersfield have joined forces to help meet the staffing needs of hundreds of firms new to the town.
Figures compiled by Kirklees Council show that on average more than 50 businesses a month have started up in Huddersfield or moved premises into the town.
The figures, which include existing firms moving premises within Huddersfield, are based on the number of new business phone lines being installed.
Workforce Now, the umbrella body for employment support agencies in the town, is staging a major event for those businesses.
The event will be held from 5pm to 7pm next Monday at the McAlpine Stadium to alert newcomer firms to the range of recruitment and training services available in the town.
The event is open to businesses across Kirklees.
Organisations taking part will include Jobcentre Plus, Kirklees Council's economic development agency, Calderdale and Kirklees Careers and Business Link for West Yorkshire.
David Powers, of Workforce Now, said: "Our figures show that Huddersfield is alive with enterprise.
"The New Business Event will provide one-stop access for business support.
"Eleven public sector business support organisations will have representatives and informative exhibition stands at the event."
