The jobs being advertised will be mainly in the catering, hospitality, care, administrative, call centre, and IT sectors.

A "Youth Village" will be formed by various support organisation to provide information, advice and guidance in career, educational and training opportunities for younger jobseekers.

Commenting on the launch of the Jobs Fair, Minister for Employment and Learning Stephen Farry said: "I welcome my Department’s association with this Jobs Fair which brings employers, support organisations and jobseekers together under one roof. Clearly this event demonstrates that, despite the economic downturn, employers are still looking to recruit both seasonal and permanent staff and that there are employment opportunities for jobseekers.

"This event is not just for those currently actively seeking employment, it is also aimed at assisting people who want to get back into work but who may have particular barriers that prevent them from doing so. Irrespective of the obstacles an individual faces, as well as employers, there will also be a range of support organisations exhibiting at the event and offering a multitude of courses, programmes, advice and guidance including my Department’s Careers Service and Employment Service."
