Opportunity for Newry unemployed at Belfast Jobs Fair

Unemployed people in the Newry & Mourne area may be able to find a way back into work, after the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) launched a Jobs Fair to offer a range of job opportunities to the public. The event will take place on Wednesday 21st November in the Europa Hotel, Belfast.

The event, which is co-financed by the European Commission, commences at 10am and runs until 6pm, is free of charge to attend and will offer job seekers the chance to discuss current job opportunities with leading local companies.

Leading employers such as Tesco, Allstate, Botanic Inns and Belfast City Council have already signed up for the event and will be offering jobs on the day. The employment opportunities are mainly in the catering, hospitality, care, administrative, call centre, and IT sectors.

Various other support organisations will also form a “Youth Village” at the event to providing information, advice and guidance in career, educational and training opportunities for younger job seekers.

Commenting on the launch of the Jobs Fair, Minister for Employment and Learning Stephen Farry said: “I welcome my Department’s association with this Jobs Fair which brings employers, support organisations and job seekers together under one roof.

“Clearly this event demonstrates that, despite the economic downturn, employers are still looking to recruit both seasonal and permanent staff and that there are employment opportunities for job seekers.

Farry continued, “This event is not just for those currently actively seeking employment, it is also aimed at assisting people who want to get back into work but who may have particular barriers that prevent them from doing so.

“Irrespective of the obstacles an individual faces, as well as employers, there will also be a range of support organisations exhibiting at the event and offering a multitude of courses, programmes, advice and guidance including my Department’s Careers Service and Employment Service.”
