With the upcoming Laois Jobs Fair only a matter of weeks away, Laois Chamber Alliance have announced a list of speakers who will be presenting on numerous different topics throughout the day.

The 2023 Laois Jobs Fair takes place on Monday, February 20 in the Midlands Park Hotel, with doors open from 12pm until 7pm.

A new addition to the event this year is a separate seminar room, with presentations taking place throughout the day which will appeal to graduates, jobseekers, and those looking to advance their career.

The first presentation will commence at 12.30pm with Laois-based Life and Career Coach, Claire Kelly, who will discuss finding your career bliss with clarity, confidence and courage.

There will also be information on apprenticeships and traineeships with Laois and Offaly Education and Training Board, third-level opportunities with South East Technological University and Technological University of the Shannon.

A CV and interview workshop with Sinéad Grehan of Iridium HR will take place and there will be a look at Wellbeing at Work with Clinical Exercise Physiologist Dr. Diane Cooper, and information on Careers in the EU with the European Commission office. These presentations are free to attend and open to all.

There will also be two presentations specific to employers and companies, with a bitesize employer information session at 1pm with LOETB on supports and training available to companies, and a bitesize employer session at 1.30pm with Local Enterprise Office Laois providing information on financial supports and training available for businesses.

The 2023 Laois Jobs Fair is sponsored by Laois and Offaly Education and Training Board and Local Enterprise Office Laois, and supported by the LEADER programme.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Aideen Poole of LOETB said: We are delighted to be one of the main sponsors again this year at the Laois Jobs Fair in the Midlands Park Hotel.

“We are looking forward to build on the success of this year. On the day, we will have representatives present from our Apprenticeship, Mount Lucas and Employer Service teams.

“We will be available to discuss any training and progression to employment routes on the day.

LOETB would like to commend the Laois Chamber for their outstanding work in coordinating another successful Jobs Fair in the county in 2022.

“Last year we were extremely impressed with the level of interest in Further Education and Training as a progression route to employment.

“It was also great for us to network with Laois employers and discuss the funded training options available to them and their staff.  We are looking forward to attending this year’s Jobs Fair again.”

The 2023 Laois Jobs Fair will see over 30 companies exhibiting on the day with 100s of roles available whether you’re a graduate, a jobseeker, or looking for a career change. Apprenticeships, traineeships, upskilling and reskilling opportunities will also be showcased, along with volunteering roles.
