Job Fair To Take Place In Belfast

Over 60 employers are to take part in a major job fair in Belfast, the Department for Communities has announced.

Roles in the care, manufacturing, construction, hospitality and financial services sectors will be advertised at the event at the Europa Hotel.

Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey said the event, scheduled for Tuesday 24 March, will match local talent to their perfect job opportunity.

"The Job Fair provides a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking for a job or changing career direction to meet with employers who have available vacancies. I would really encourage anyone seeking work or employment advice to come along on the 24 March to see the opportunities on offer."

Gordon Milligan, Deputy Chief Executive of Translink, one of the employers taking part in the Job Fair, said: "This is a great way to meet jobseekers and share information of the various opportunities available within Translink. It is an exciting time to join Translink with work getting underway on the Belfast Transport Hub. This project will transform public transport and offer jobs based in the heart of Belfast. We encourage those seeking a career in the transport industry to get on board with us as we continue our journey towards making public transport the first choice for travel for everyone in Belfast."

The fair will take place between 11am and 4pm, coinciding with Belfast City Council's Festival of Learning.

Job Search, Disability Employment and the Careers Service will be on hand to provide guidance on training and employment opportunities for anyone seeking to upskill or retrain.
