#careerskilkenny event - 28th December 2019

Nine hundred and eighty one prospective employees, home in Kilkenny for Christmas and those living locally, turned up to check out the jobs on offer at Kilkenny County Council’s #careerskilkenny event.  Such was the demand for jobs in the county that there was a queue to get in the door.

People from far and wide converged on the Medieval Mile Museum to attend #careerskilkenny, an event organised to highlight 636 high quality jobs on offer in 22 Kilkenny based companies.

Twenty-two of Kilkenny’s biggest employers took part in the event which aimed to provide people home for Christmas with the opportunity to speak to Kilkenny employers who are seeking to fill a wide range of positions across a variety of sectors in 2020.

Companies taking part included State Street, The Taxback Group, Cartoon Saloon & Lighthouse Studios, VHI, Bank of Ireland, CF Pharma, Prochem Engineering, Irish Water, FRS Recruitment, Optimise Recruitment, Noel Lawler Consulting Engineers, Carne Group and the Asgard Group. They were joined by rapidly growing local companies such as the Modubuild, Beotanics, Loanitt, AB Agri, Entegro, Security Risk Advisors, CR Payroll and New Work Junction.

The companies were recruiting professionals and roles in customer care and sales, engineering, technical, financial, administration, network planners, technicians, HR, accounting, facilities and production.

Feedback to date has been hugely positive from both employers and prospective employees and a formal survey will follow up with both groups on the outcomes of same in February 2020.
