As well as having the opportunity to meet with employers and representatives of the organisations above, attendees at the event can expect the following:

 
     
  1. Information and advice on supports available to both jobseekers and employers from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. Information packs for employers and jobseekers will be available and Department officials will be on hand throughout the event
