A SERIES of careers events are to take place across Limerick in the coming days to mark Jobs Week 2018.

The South Court Hotel will play host to the region’s main event on Tuesday night, March 6, between 2pm and 7pm.

Jobseekers attending the Mid-West Jobs Fair will get an opportunity to meet with local companies actively recruiting, from multinationals to local small and medium sized enterprises.

A wide variety of positions will be available across many sectors.

Free career advice will also be on offer for jobseekers from a panel of qualified and highly experienced professionals.

Jobseekers needing assistance with their future career will have the opportunity to speak with one of a team of advisors who will help them identify suitable career options.

Local training and education providers will also be present providing guidance and advice. 

Jim Lynch, the department of social protection’s divisional manager said: “This year we are delighted with the support from local employers and training institutions. Now in its sixth year, the jobs fair is an established event with a wide variety of jobs on offer.

"This contributes to growing a stronger regional economy. We are delighted to partner with the Mid West regional skills forum, and the Limerick Chamber skillnet to offer this great opportunity to both the employers and the jobseekers of the Mid-West”.

A number of other events will also take place, including an overview of how Jobs Ireland works in Kilmallock’s Coote Hall on Tuesday morning, while the village’s pastoral centre will play host to a fair offering opportunities in the healthcare sector the following day.

The West Limerick Resources jobs club in Newcastle West will host a fair on Friday, from 9.30am.
