Trainees will be provided with information on our future training courses – the majority of which are free to jobseekers.”

Jobseekers are encouraged to bring along their CV’s, local recruitment companies will be represented, if you wish to discuss your CV content, interview tips etc.  Some local businesses will be attending with an offering of their current vacancies, their potential candidate requirements & a peek into an employee’s career journey. There will be a chance for networking with tea & a chat. The Department of Social Protection will also be in attendance to discuss queries relating to payments & training.
