Jobs Expo Cork
We are also excited about holding our first jobs event outside of Dublin. Jobs Expo Cork will take place on Tuesday 10th September (12pm-6pm) at the Silver Springs Moran Hotel and will be supported by Cork Chamber of Commerce. Jobs Expo Cork will be the first event of its kind to be held in Munster, so we’re anticipating a fantastic turnout and another highly rewarding day.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton today announced the establishment by Enterprise Ireland of a new €250,000 Competitive Feasibility Fund for Female Entrepreneurs aimed at continuing to significantly boost the number of high potential female-led business start-ups. This initiative is part of a drive by Enterprise Ireland to boost the number of innovative, export-oriented businesses being set up and led by female entrepreneurs.
Career Zoo is established as Ireland’s biggest career event for professionals and graduates who are seeking new career opportunities in Ireland.
JobBridge is the National Internship Scheme that provides work experience placements for interns for a 6 or 9 month period.
The aim of the National Internship Scheme is to assist in breaking the cycle where jobseekers are unable to get a job without experience, either as new entrants to the labour market after education or training or as unemployed workers wishing to learn new skills. The Scheme will also give people a real opportunity to gain valuable experience to bridge the gap between study and the beginning of their working lives.
The Scheme provides for up to 8,500 work experience placements in the private, public, voluntary & community sectors. Interns receive an allowance of €50 per week on top of their existing social welfare entitlement. This is payable for the period of their internship.
