BCS Sales Recruitment are looking forward to a very busy year in 2019. The organisers of Jobs Expo Galway will be exhibiting at the first expo of the new year. Meet their team at the Galway Racecourse on Saturday 16th February.
BCS are the sponsors and organisers of the Jobs Expo. Since 2012, they have run highly successful careers events in Cork, Dublin, and Galway twice a year. They are also the team behind Virtual Expos Ireland. BCS are returning to Galway for February 2019.
“One of the major benefits of Jobs Expo is that it allows employees and employers to meet and discuss career opportunities in a relatively informal setting,” says Bronagh Cotter of BCS. “Attendees can meet a variety of employers, and employers can conduct several initial interviews with potential employees. Furthermore, for recruitment firms like BCS, Jobs Expo is a chance to connect with candidates and companies.”
On the day, BCS Sales Recruitment team can offer guidance to jobseekers on a variety of topics such as interview techniques and professional growth. Their jobseeker services are there to avail of for anybody on the lookout for employment.
“Many jobseekers are unsure how to sell themselves to employers. Even if they have all the necessary skills and experience, they can have trouble communicating that. Some candidates underestimate the importance of soft skills, and fail to highlight these,” she contends.
Successful recruitment should create a mutually beneficial relationship between candidates and companies, says Bronagh.
“We aim to find the best fit for both employees and employers. Companies want more than just an employee with skills and experience. They want staff who fit into their company’s culture. It is much the same for jobseekers, particularly if they have in-demand skills. Of course, salary is a consideration, but it is not the only one. Depending on their circumstances, their priority could be the potential for promotion, the chance to upskill, travel opportunities or work-life balance,” she explains.
“Therefore, we match a candidate’s goals and expectations with the right company. It is our firm belief that it is not a job well done unless both the candidate and company benefit. We spend so much of our lives are at work. That means that finding the right fit is crucial.”

U.S. Cyber Security Company ReliaQuest will create 100 jobs in Ireland over the next 3 years with the launch of their brand new office.
A leader in Security Model Management, ReliaQuest announced the opening of their 1st office location outside of the United States in Leopardstown, Dublin. Founded in 2007, this company today employs over 300 staff across its 3 office locations in Tampa, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Dublin, Ireland. They will create 100 jobs in their Dublin office over the next 3 years. These will mainly be within their Security Operations Centre, consisting of security engineers, analysts and content developers. ReliaQuest is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
“We chose Dublin for several reasons, including its strong talent, the ease of travel back and forth from our headquarters in the US and around the rest of Europe, and the openness and focus on collaboration fostered by Ireland,” says ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy. “All of these things make Dublin a great place to be.”
Welcoming the announcement, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said, “I am delighted to see ReliaQuest open their first European office in Dublin. This will result in the creation of over 100 highly skilled jobs and they will join a growing cluster of cyber security firms already based here. This is an exciting announcement in an increasingly important sector and I wish them every success.”
Commenting on the announcement, IDA Ireland’s CEO Martin Shanahan said, “Ireland has become a significant base of international technology and security companies thanks to a growing, well-educated and flexible workforce with a rapidly increasing graduate output. I am delighted that ReliaQuest chose Ireland to be the location for its international expansion. As a committed member of the EU, overseas companies increasingly look to Ireland as a base from which to serve its customers in the region.”
