Free bus laid on for big Jobs Fair 29.02.08

THE ORGANISERS of a major cross-border Jobs Fair in Buncrana next week are laying on free buses to take people to the event.
More than 20 large employers from Donegal and Derry will be exhibiting at the event on Wednesday, March 5, from 10.30am to 6.30pm in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel.
Their recruitment staff will take applications on the day and discuss the positions on offer in more detail with jobseekers.
The event is part of the EURES (European Employment Service) cross-border partnership that has been established to make things easier for people who want to commute on a daily or weekly basis across the border to earn a living. It also aims to assist employers by providing them with access to a larger pool of labour i.e. jobseekers living on the other side of the border.
The Jobs Fair co-hosts are the Department of Social and Family Affairs; Department for Employment & Learning in Northern Ireland; the Inishowen Development Partnership (IDP) and the IDP's Job Club.
"The Jobs Fair is aimed at all people looking for work whether they are currently unemployed, working in the home or employed but seeking new and more challenging careers," said an IDP spokesperson.
"Support agencies will also be available on the day to advice employers and jobseekers on the various incentives and programmes that both governments have for people taking up employment. Everyone is more than welcome to attend the Jobs Fair and we anticipate a large turnout."
Anyone who doesn't have transport, can avail of the free transport being laid on by the Job Club. If you would like to use the bus, please call Inishowen Development Partnership on 074 9361376 or 074 9362218 to reserve a place. Alternatively, simply turn up on the day.
