Public Who Want To Work In Hospitality Industry Urged To Attend Jobs Fair

Belfast City Council is urging people who are interested in working in the hospitality industry to attend a jobs fair in St George's Market on Wednesday 26 September.

The Belfast Hospitality Careers and Jobs Fair is running from 10am-3pm with more than 40 employers currently recruiting for hospitality and catering jobs with free advice and support for anyone considering a career in these sectors.

Aiming to bring together key partners to offer tailored local employment initiatives, NI Hotels Federation, Tourism NI, the Department for Communities, the Department for the Economy and Invest NI are working in partnership to organise and deliver the event.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Deirdre Hargey, said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with these organisations in delivering the Belfast Hospitality Careers and Jobs Fair. I am encouraging everyone to come along and find out what the industry does and how to join it.

"The event is open to all, so even if it has just crossed your mind that you might like to work in the hospitality sector and don’t know too much about it, the jobs fair will fill in the blanks providing information so you can decide whether to go ahead or not."

The New Horizons zone will have advisors from employability and training providers, and will include practical sessions on CV tips, developing interview skills and careers advice and guidance.
