Joe Delaney, Director of Limerick Regeneration Directorate said: “The Jobs Fair is an initiative of the Outreach to Employment Programme which aims to challenge unemployment within Regeneration communities through an integrated service approach.  It is designed to equip unemployed young men and women with the skills and confidence to secure employment and training opportunities. The feedback from employers to last year’s Jobs Fair was extremely positive and the communities are welcoming its return this year.”
