Launch of Killarney Hotels Recruitment Fair

Published

on

HOTEL RECRUITMENT: The second Killarney Hotels Recruitment Fair will take place next February. Standing left to right were: Lisa Kirwan (Muckross Park Hotel), Emer Corridan and Kathryn Cronin (Killarney Park Hotel), Noel Spillane (CEO SKDP), Mary Kelly (Gleneagle Hotel), Milandi Basel (Great Southern Killarney). Seated were: Sarah Mannix (Lake Hotel) and Joanne Griffin (SKDP).

Seven hotels are to take part in the second Killarney Hotel Recruitment Fair taking place next February.
The event, which is organised by South Kerry Development Partnership through The SICAP programme, aims to assist job seekers and employers in the hotel sector with vacancies to meet in a more informal setting. It also offers both the jobseekers and the employers the opportunity to meet a large range of potential employers and employees on the same day. The event targets job seekers both with experience in the hotel sector already but also those who are seeking a change in career and who can take up many different roles within the hotel sector.
SKDP Enterprise Officer Joanne Griffin, who organises the event, said that the first event proved to be so successful this year it was decided to go ahead with it again in 2020.
“Of the almost 100 job seekers who attended the event, more than one third of them secured employment with hotels who attended on the day,” Joanne said.
“Both the hotels and the jobseekers who attended also found the event very useful as it gave them the chance to get to know each other in a setting outside the direct workplace,” she added.
The current hotels involved are The Great Southern Killarney, Cahernane House Hotel, The Gleneagle Group, the Muckross Park Hotel, the Aghadoe Heights Hotel, The Killarney Park and The Lake Hotel.
Joanne added that she would welcome any other hotels in the greater Killarney area who are interested in taking part to get involved.
“If they are interested they can simply contact me by email at jgriffin@skdp.net or 087 6152660 before December 6, so that we can get them involved.”

Lee Strand was recognised once again for their exceptional performance and commitment to sustainability with Gold Membership at the Origin Green 2022 awards.

Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme led by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board. Gold Membership is awarded to companies who demonstrate an exceptional annual performance on their sustainability targets.

“We are delighted Lee Strand is recognised once again with the prestigious Origin Green Gold Membership for our commitment to sustainability,” Gearoid Linnane, CEO said.

“In Lee Strand environmental management and sustainability are key elements of our business model, from launching 100% renewable cartons, to reducing water usage and energy efficiency. This is a great achievement by our sustainability team who are continually striving for higher levels of environmental excellence. We would also like to thank Veronica Kennelly from the Munster Technological University who assisted Lee Strand in the development of our Origin Green plan.”

Origin Green continues to evolve to ensure Bord Bia is helping Irish food and drink companies to remain up to date with the evolving needs of trade customers and their consumers, globally. With the introduction of the Origin Green credits system in early 2022, it is now easier to identify members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance.

To retain ongoing membership of Origin Green, companies must subsequently submit an annual review to demonstrate clear progress against the established targets and initiatives set. This annual review is subject to an independent third-party review by their verification authority Mabbett. This ensures minimum programme requirements are consistently met and maintained. Companies receive credits for their performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. Origin Green has established five different membership tiers based on company size and turnover, so that a real diversity of industry is reflected in the overall Gold Membership.
