Post-COVID recruitment fair to help kick-start industry

It's full steam ahead for the third annual South Kerry Hotel Recruitment fair to help kick-start the critical tourism season in the region.

While COVID has delayed the event, SKDP’s Enterprise Office Joanne Griffin said that they are now working to ensure the event can take place as soon as possible.

While the start of the tourism season has been delayed due to COVID-19, the many hotels involved are actively recruiting staff with the hope of having a positive season.

However, the event will not be held in its usual format due to restrictions on large gatherings, she explained.

"We hope that our work developing an alternative will continue the success of the event for both the recruiters and job seekers,” Joanne said.

The whole idea of the event is to introduce those interested in taking up a career in the hotel industry with a large number of employers from the sector in an informal setting. It is organised through South Kerry Development Partnership’s SICAP programme and has proven hugely popular since its inception.

The event is open to those who already have experience in the hotel sector as well as those who might be interested in a career change.

“Its success is built on the fact that employers get to meet with a broad range of potential employees with a range of skills that they otherwise might not have the chance to interact with,” she said.

"We anticipate that this will continue to be the case despite the changed format proposed this year."

Participation in the event is through registration and jobseekers wishing to take part are asked to register now by contacting Joanne by email at jgriffin@skdp.net or 087 6152660.
