The Grow Remote Dundalk chapter is hosting an in-person jobs fair, introducing local workers to the numerous remote employers that are currently recruiting in Ireland.
The event will take place on Saturday, July 16th, and job seekers and those interested in finding out more about remote work job opportunities are free to attend from 10am – 2pm at Creative Spark Downtown, Clanbrassil Street.
“When the news broke at the end of May about the number of jobs at risk for local workers in Paypal, I immediately contacted friends to send them links to Grow Remote resources,” says Ciara Breen from the Dundalk Grow Remote Chapter. “It was an emotional time for people so I got in contact with the Grow Remote team and suggested we hold an in-person event on remote working for the local workers affected - but also to make people aware of their remote options at this time. I think it will be a very beneficial and fun event for people to pop into.”
The Jobs Fair will combine various supports offered by Grow Remote, says Grow Remote Employers Lead, Joanne Mangan.
“We seek to make the local community aware of current jobs available here in Dundalk, running a number of bite-sized workshops and presentations covering everything from where to look for jobs, CV clinics to how to set yourself up as remote-ready. At Grow Remote, social connection is very important so there will be a bite to eat, a welcoming atmosphere, and some time to connect with our Dundalk chapter members and job seekers.”
The event will be attended by the Grow Remote employers and community teams,
Anyone interesting in finding out more information can do so by registering through Eventbrite or by popping in to Downtown hub on Saturday July 16th from 10am – 2pm.
Any remote employees who would like to get involved, can reach out to the local Grow Remote chapter through firstname.lastname@example.org.
