Over 190 jobs available at Cross Border Jobs Fair in Ballyconnell

Launch of Cross Border Jobs Fair, September 2018

Over 190 job vacancies from a wide range of sectors will be showcased at the first Cross Border Jobs Fair in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell on Thursday, September 20.


With Brexit up in the air and much talk about the need for young people to stay within the local rural area, this jobs fair will be of interest to many.
The event organised by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, along with the EURES Cross-Border Partnership will be launched by new Leitrim and Cavan GAA Senior Football Managers Terry Hyland and Mickey Graham.


Minister Regina Doherty is encouraging people in the north-east region who are either looking for work or considering changing job or career to attend. She said, "The Job Fair in the Slieve Russell Hotel on 20th September offers a range of job vacancies and first-hand advice to people looking for work or considering changing job. There will be a broad range of vacancies on offer and an opportunity to speak with employers who are actively recruiting on the day. Similar Job Fairs have recently been held in the north-east region and have proved very successful in sourcing suitable employment opportunities and connecting jobseekers with employers.”


Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys, said “I am delighted that this event is being held in Ballyconnell to showcase the many vacancies on offer across 15 different employers in the shared border region of Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim and Fermanagh. The businesses participating include both new and existing investors in our communities, which means that the event will showcase a wide and diverse range of opportunities.”


There will be over 190 job vacancies across 15 employers - including manufacturing, construction, engineering, hospitality, sales, homecare and the food industry - on offer in cross-border areas of Cavan, Leitrim, Fermanagh and Monaghan, as well as throughout Europe.


Employers taking part in the Job Fair include Quinn Building Products, Quinn Packaging, the Slieve Russell Hotel, Crust and Crumb, ABP Food Group, Donnolly Group, and SCL Sales.
There will also be one-to-one coaching clinics throughout the day providing tailored recruitment and CV preparation advice. The event is free.
