Employment Advice Forum set for Strabane

Strabane is to host an Employment, Training and Advice Forum on 27 May.

This event has been organised by the Department for Employment and Learning in conjunction with Strabane District Council, Eures, Eures Cross Border and Dundalk Chamber and will take place at the town’s Alley Arts and Conference Centre. A number of local and cross border employers will be advertising job vacancies and the event will also provide an opportunity for unemployed jobseekers to get advice on retraining and upskilling, information on further and higher education courses and valuable careers advice.  In addition, advice for those people interested in starting their own business will be on offer and a CV clinic will be available for anyone who requires help in this area.

Extending an invite to local jobseekers, Damien McAdams, District Manager for the Department for Employment and Learning said: “This Forum follows on from a number of highly successful events in Strabane which have highlighted services the Department offers to employers and jobseekers alike. Information will be available on a wide range of the Department’s services, all of which are focused on improving employability and with the ultimate aim of helping people find and maintain meaningful employment.  I would urge anyone in Strabane district – whether seeking employment, returning to education, improving their skills or retraining – to take the opportunity to see what help is available.”

In addition to DEL staff, representatives from FÁS, the Irish National Training and Employment Authority, will be available on the day to discuss the range of vacancies that are available.

For those with hearing difficulties, British and Irish Sign Language signers will be available from 10am to 12pm.

Further information on the Forum can be found by contacting Patricia Cooke on 028 7127 6931.
