Kerry GAA Education & Jobs Fair

posted 8 Apr 2013, 06:48 by Unknown user
Coiste Chontae Chiarraì, Rural Depopulation Sub-Committee was established to address the depopulation problem facing Football and Hurling Clubs in Kerry. To date, the Sub-committee has produced a report on the situation which included recommendations on how to address the problems. The Local Development Companies in Kerry are actively involved with Coiste Chontae Chiarraì in reaching out to help players and general club members to find work and educational opportunities in Kerry and Ireland. Four regional meetings were held before Christmas to show the clubs what services were available locally. At one of these meetings it was proposed to organise a large scale Job’s Fair and Education Options event. This was also recommended in the initial depopulation report.

This event will take place in the INEC, Killarney on Friday 12th April 2013 from 2.00pm to 9.00pm.and thanks to the goodwill of the Gleneagle Group, will be free to the general public and to the companies and agencies that participate in the event. It is anticipated that large numbers of young players and club members along with the general public will attend the event. Guest speakers from the Government, the GAA, Education and Business worlds will speak at the event. Buses will be available to bring students and the general public from all areas of the county. All Companies with job opportunities from all around the country will be invited to attend along with recruitment agencies, agencies involved with job creation and all third level institutions. At present we have over 30 stands committed to attending the event. These stands between them have over 200 Kerry Jobs and over 3,500 National jobs on offer. Workshops will take place on the day on CV presentation, interview skills, 3rd level education options, further training opportunities etc.
