Meath Job Fair

Meath Job Fair

On the 11th of September Cultur and Meath Partnership hosted the  “Meath Job Fair” in The Trim Castle Hotel.

As part of our socio-economic integration  work Cultúr Migrant Centre and Meath Partnership have been working on the NetWORK project, a project that focuses on supporting migrant women to gain employability skills. The NetWORK Project has provided comprehensive life and job ready skills training that equipped over 115 female refugees and migrants over the course of 2 years with the skills required to succeed in Ireland.

The Job fair was open to the public and approximately 112 people were in attendance. During the day, attendees had a unique opportunity to meet with  recruitment agencies and potential employers from various organisations all in the same room. Some of the attendees also had their CV looked at by job coaches and for those interested in setting up their own businesses, mentors were available to offer a free service.

At the conclusion of the job fair up to 20 attendees had met with a job coach for one to one support  discussed employment opportunities with up to 15 potential employers.

The NetWORK Project was approved by Government with the support of the Dormant Accounts Fund.
