The West's Leading Employers

Almost 40 of the West’s leading employers are to exhibit at the inaugural Jobs Expo Galway this Saturday. Employers include those from multiple sectors including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), ICT, Medtech, Retail, Insurance, Hotels, Recruitment, Training and Pharma as well as local employment networks and the Western Development Commission. Meanwhile, international employers exhibiting include Immigration Northwest Ontario, the Isle of Man Government, Motor, and Local Employment networks

The event will take place on Saturday 11th February at the Radisson Blu on Mt. Atalia Road from 11am to 4pm. It will showcase some of the region’s most highly-regarded companies, including both Irish and multinational employers. It is the first time Jobs Expo has taken place in Galway; the event takes twice-yearly in Dublin and Cork and is regarded as Ireland’s leading jobs fair.

It’s aimed at people in Galway and the wider western region seeking opportunities or a career change and is free to attend.

“We have had a tremendous response from companies and jobseekers for this Saturday’s event”, says organiser Bronagh Cotter of Careers Unlimited. “The job market in the West has heated up substantially and companies are looking to recruit and expand. This Saturday’s expo features employers from a wide range of sectors, seeking to meet skilled professionals for the West of Ireland.”

As well as the wide array of employers, Jobs Expo Galway will feature a day of seminars, talks and free career advice in the ‘Career Clinic’, a dedicated area staffed by experienced career coaches. “The Career Clinic is one of the most important and popular aspects of Jobs Expo, and it’s totally free of charge to attendees. Our team of coaches will help jobseekers with practical advice, such as CV preparation and interview skills. They can also assist people who want a career change,” says Ms Cotter. Meanwhile, the Seminar Zone will offer free, topical talks given by industry insiders. “We have some very interesting talks lined up for this Saturday’s Seminar Zone event”, she says.

“Our aim is to ensure that Jobs Expo has something for everyone, from entry-level positions to senior management roles as well as everything in between,” explains Bronagh. “Our main sponsor, Mathworks, will talk about opportunities at their new Galway office, while MetLife will tell us all about their new Global Technology Campus. Immigration Northwestern Ontario will explain why you should consider moving to this part of Canada, and for unemployed people thinking of retraining, FIT will discuss their ICT Associate Professional Apprenticeship Style Programme. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg”, she says.

“In addition, the West is a STEM, medical technology and ICT hub, and many companies taking part in Jobs Expo Galway reflect this. There will be no shortage of high-end roles at Jobs Expo this Saturday”, says Bronagh.

The first Jobs Expo Galway takes place on Saturday 11 February 2017

Jobs Expo Galway

Exciting news for Galway! Jobs Expo, Ireland’s largest careers and recruitment event, will take place for the first time in the City of the Tribes on Saturday 11 February 2017.

The hugely successful Jobs Expo has run in Dublin, Cork and Belfast since 2012 and has introduced thousands of jobseekers to hundreds of companies in a variety of sectors. Jobs Expo gives attendees the chance to meet companies in an informal setting, find out about them, and discover career opportunities in sectors they may not have previously considered. For companies, Jobs Expo streamlines the recruitment process, introducing them to a huge number of potential employees.

“We are asked regularly by employers and members of the public alike to bring Jobs Expo to Galway and now we are doing so,” explains organiser Kevin Branigan of Careers Unlimited.

“Jobs growth in the West of Ireland is a priority for the government and there’s a lot happening already. The West is a globally recognised medical technology hub and the ICT sector is booming too. Mayo and Roscommon have a growing number of life sciences companies and Galway is a major tech centre. Many of these companies are in recruitment mode and as they grow they need all kinds of talent.”

Companies recruiting at Jobs Expo Galway will cover a number of industries. These include growth sectors such as science, technology, engineering and construction as well as long established sectors such as education, hospitality, retail sales, healthcare and more.

“It’s really important to us that each Jobs Expo features companies recruiting for a variety of roles. We want there to be something for everyone, whether they are looking for an entry-level or a senior position. Whether you are a graduate or a school leaver, highly skilled, unemployed or looking for new opportunities, there’ll be something for you,” says Kevin.

Like the events in Dublin, Cork and Belfast, Jobs Expo Galway will also include Jobs Expo’s very popular Career Clinic. Over the course of the event, jobseekers will be able to meet one-on-one with career coaches. The coaches will offer expert professional development advice and help jobseekers land their dream job. The Career Clinic is free to all attendees.

“The Career Clinic is one of the most popular aspects of Jobs Expo. The coaches help jobseekers with practical advice, such as CV preparation and interview skills. Even highly qualified people can need assistance with this. Being great at your job and being great at job interviews are very different skills!” says Kevin.

Jobs Expo Galway will also include a Seminar Zone featuring free, topical talks by industry insiders.

“The Seminar Zone is always packed. We’ve had some fantastic speakers over the years. At our last Cork event the National Ambulance Service gave a fascinating seminar on the work they do, US Immigration Attorney Caro Kinsella talked about getting a working visa to the States, and Leonard Donnelly of innovative tech company ArtofUs discussed the concept of human operating systems. That’s just to name a few,” explains Kevin.
