OVER 30 EMPLOYERS OFFERING WORK AT WEXFORD JOBS FAIR
Up to 2,000 jobseekers are attending Wexford County Hall today for a jobs fair.
The event opened at 10 o’clock and will continue until 4pm this afternoon.
People attending the event are asked to use the park and ride facility by parking in the grounds of Wexford Rugby Club.
Patricia Delaney is Divisional Manager with the Department of Social Protection in Wexford.
She outlines the scale of potential jobs at the event:
“We have over 50 stands here, 33 employers, all offering jobs. I think that’s the main message that we do want to get out today” she said.
“The local employment service here with Wexford local development are here for a C.V clinic, getting set up while we speak here”
“We’re expecting, hopefully, one and a half to two thousand people here today. We have registration desks set up, 10 staff from our own offices in Wexford all ready to meet our jobseekers coming in” she added.
