A major jobs fair, which will be open to jobseekers and employers, will take place in Killarney this coming Wednesday (May 25).

South Kerry Development Partnership CLG in conjunction with Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce launched their first joint South Kerry Jobs Fair 2022.

Information on a huge variety of full-time, part-time, seasonal and remote jobs will be available on the day in the Great Southern Killarney from 10.30am to 2pm, and it will give job hunters an opportunity to connect with employers from many industries and sectors.

While all industries have endured a difficult time due to COVID, there is optimism growing strongly again for 2022 and that there will be significant job opportunities available in all sectors.

SKDP Enterprise Officer Joanne Griffin, who organises the event alongside Katy Jacobi, Events Manager from Killarney Tourism and Chamber of Commerce, said that employers she has spoken to are optimistic with regard to the 2022 season.

"All employers are telling me they have a significant number of jobs available across all departments and they are hopeful that people will return to employment again,” Joanne said.

The event will again target all jobseekers but also those who are looking for a change in career and applications from jobseekers to take part in the event is by registration at the entrance on the day.

“This event offers both the jobseekers and the employers the opportunity to meet a large range of potential employers and employees on the same day which has proven to be a key factor in previous SKDP Recruitment events success."

Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce President, Niall Kelleher, said the business community is very excited about the jobs fair which will put jobseekers and employers in touch with each other.

“This event could well provide the opportunity many people are waiting for and we extend an open invitation to everybody to attend on the day,” he said.
