Grab your hardhat, toolkit and CV. . . Construction Jobs Expo is coming to back to town this spring. The recruitment fair will take place on Saturday May 11th at Croke Park's Hogan Suite.
Construction Job Expo is Ireland’s new jobs and employment fair. The aim of the event is to place construction workers directly in touch with the industry employers in Ireland. The Construction Jobs Expo has been devised because of the demand for skilled construction workers within the industry. Furthermore, as the Irish construction industry continues to gather pace, this expo can act as an arena for candidates and employers to meet.
The Construction Industry Federation expects that up to 112,000 jobs will be created between now and 2020 in order to complete an estimated €17.8bn worth of projects ready to go from next year. Key requirements will be:
• 30,800 carpenters and joiners
• 15,200 electricians
• 13,900 plasterers and tillers
• 11,800 plumbers
• 9,400 painters and decorators
• 7,800 bricklayers
Construction Jobs Expo is an excellent opportunity to meet employers face-to-face, make great industry connections and get FREE career guidance. The event establishes a more informal setting, where you can talk to employers in a more relaxed environment. In addition to meeting employers, there are career coaches present to offer help with CVs and interview skills. As well as innovative industry talks from career professionals.
Finding staff with talent, energy and innovative thinking is necessary, but it can be a time-consuming and costly business. The Construction Jobs Expo campaign will advertise companies and their job vacancies leading upto the event. The marketing across radio, cinema, social media and print will attract a wide variety of talented candidates. These will include carpenters, joiners, electricians, plasterers and tillers, plumbers, painters and decorators and bricklayers amongst others.
Construction Jobs Expo will take place in Dublin on May 11th at Croke Park. It'll be a FREE event for anyone attending. It will be run by Careers Unlimited, operators of the Jobs Expo Ireland fairs, which take place twice-yearly in Dublin, Cork & Galway.
