Employment Advice And Opportunities On Offer At Tyrone Jobs Fair

Local companies will once again join forces to promote their businesses and employment opportunities at the Tyrone Jobs Fair to be held at
South West College, Omagh on Friday, September 19, 2014.

Building on the success of last year’s event which attracted over 500 people from across the county, a partnership involving Business in the Community’s Omagh Business Leadership Network, Ulster Herald, part of North-West News Group, and South West College have once again
committed to running the Tyrone Jobs Fair on September 19.

A number of key local public and private sector employers and training organisations are expected to attend and will promote jobs and other
training and employment opportunities which job seekers can avail of.

The Jobs Fair is open to anyone seeking employment advice from local business leaders, looking for a job or a new employment opportunity. Job seekers can also seek interview advice and guidance from local employers throughout the day.

Enterprise Minister, Arlene Foster MLA, commented: “By bringing jobseekers face-to-face with potential employers and training organisations to discuss job vacancies, the Tyrone Jobs Fair gives local people the ideal opportunity to engage with the wide range of companies who will be seeking to recruit staff.

“These events play a vital role in helping people back into work, boosting their employability and strengthening the economy in Tyrone. I
would encourage anyone seeking to enhance their employment prospects to come along and see what the Jobs Fair has to offer.”

Local business leader and Chair of the Omagh Business and Leadership Network, Seamus McCaffrey is calling upon local employers to
pledge their commitment to participate, “With so many people currently out of work in Tyrone, as business leaders, we have an obligation to do
everything within our power to prevent the drain of talent from our community and boost our local economies.

“Local employers really got behind the jobs fair last year and we hope to replicate that success. We would encourage any employer that has something to offer to participate, whether that be jobs, apprenticeships, or work placements, all of which will positively contribute to employment in the county.”

Interested employers are encouraged to register as soon as possible and can find full details on the Business in the Community website at www.bitcni.org.uk/events.
