Jobs Fair In L'Derry Is Coming Soon

L'Derry will play host to a major Jobs Fair and Advice Forum on 11 September 2013.

The fair, which will take place in the Millennium Forum between 10am and 4pm, has been organised by the Department for Employment and Learning in conjunction with Derry City Council, CultureTECH and EURES.

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

A wide range of vacancies will be available particularly with an emphasis on Information Technology (IT), Media and Creative Industries in support of Digital Derry. Advice and guidance will also be available on a range of training and re-skilling opportunities.

The Minister continued: "A range of support organisations, for example my Department’s Careers Service and Employment Service, will also be present to provide individuals with information, advice and guidance on a range of training and employment schemes that can assist individuals progress towards work and better employment prospects, equipping them with the skills to compete in the labour market and meet the needs of employers both now and in the future."
