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.

As part of their integration work, Cultur and Meath Partnership secured funding from the Dormant Account Funds and partnered in delivering a programme aimed at addressing the barriers to employment experienced by migrant women in county Meath. The Net-WORK project was delivered through practical, hands on, integrative, accredited and non-accredited support and training programmes that enhanced the skills of women with leave to remain or refugee status to stay and progress in employment. These included soft skills training cultural awareness in the work place and job activation skills.
The certificate Awards Ceremony held in the Pillo hotel in Ashbourne on the 19 of December 2108 was to recognise and celebrate the incredible participants achievements from the year as well as taking time to reflect on the exceptional achievements for all those who have returned to work.
