The Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, Regina Doherty, T.D., has encouraged people in the north-east region who are either looking for work or considering changing job or career to attend.  She said:

"The Job Fair in the Slieve Russel hotel on 20 September offers a range of job vacancies and first-hand advice to people looking for work or considering changing job.  There will be a broad range of vacancies on offer and an opportunity to speak with employers who are actively recruiting on the day.  Similar Job Fairs have recently been held in the north-east region and have proved very successful in sourcing suitable employment opportunities and connecting jobseekers with employers.”

Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys, T.D., said “I am delighted that this event is being held in Ballyconnell to showcase the many vacancies on offer across 15 different employers in the shared border region of Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim and Fermanagh. I would strongly encourage anyone in the local area looking for employment to attend this Job Fair and take advantage of the many resources and information on display. The businesses participating include both new and existing investors in our communities, which means that the event will showcase a wide and diverse range of opportunities.”

There will be over 190 job vacancies across 15 employers - including manufacturing, construction, engineering, hospitality, sales, homecare and the food industry - on offer in cross-border areas of Cavan, Leitrim, Fermanagh and Monaghan, as well as throughout Europe.  Employers taking part in the Job Fair include Quinn Building Products, Quinn Packaging, the Slieve Russell Hotel, Crust and Crumb, ABP Food Group, Donnolly Group, and SCL Sales.
