Are you currently working in the construction industry or thinking about moving into this sector? If so, the Construction Jobs Expo in Croke Park, Dublin is the place to explore your options on Saturday September 29th.

Thousands of jobs on offer will be on offer at the Expo. It’s a free event, the first of its kind and features over 30 leading employers such as Cairn Homes, Glenveagh Properties, JJ Rhatigan, SIAC, Bennett Construction, Amazon and Bord Gáis Energy.

Companies in attendance on the day will be seeking engineers, electricians, estimators, quantity surveyors, health, safety, environmental and quality professionals as well as instrument technicians and experts in heating and plumbing.

Construction Jobs Expo is the first careers exhibition of its type and signals the return of high demand for skilled labour in Ireland. The construction sector suffered more than most during the economic downturn, but it now appears that the sector is back stronger than ever, with official figures indicating that over 120,000 skilled workers required between now and 2020. This need for skilled employees arises at a time when there is a huge shortage of construction workers in Ireland.

  • Glenveagh PLC
  • JJ Rhatigan
  • Bord Gais Energy
  • Linesight
  • Jones Engineering
  • Heat Merchant Group
  • SIAC
  • PM Group

In addition to meeting employers, there will also be the opportunity to attend a range of innovative industry talks from career professionals who will cover advice on everything from upskilling and education courses, to bridging the gender gap in the sector.

Seminars taking place include:

  • Glenveagh: The Story so Farwith Stephen Garvey from Glenveagh Properties PLC
  • Build a Career with a Differencewith Gareth McGrane & Marc Lucock from Grafton Merchanting

Construction Jobs Expo is organised by Careers Unlimited, an Irish company which specialises in education, recruitment and career enhancement. Bronagh Cotter from Careers Unlimited says:

“The construction sector is currently one of the most exciting areas to work in. There are so many opportunities that it makes sense to have a forum where industry professionals can hear about the opportunities available and employers can speak directly to them. All of our exhibitors are leading employers in the sector and this is the only event of its kind for the industry that is free to enter. If you’re looking for a new role, Construction Jobs Expo is the place to be on 29 September.”

 Judy Byrne, Managing Director, Cairn Homes, says:

“As Ireland’s leading housebuilding company, continuing to recruit highly qualified and skilled staff is crucial to our business. Given the Construction Jobs Expo is Ireland’s new jobs and employment fair, putting construction workers directly in touch with employers in the Industry in Ireland, we felt now is the opportune time to promote and encourage workers to attend and showcase companies like Cairn, and the long-term prospects we offer, to the large talent pool in the construction industry in Ireland. We are delighted to be title sponsor of the event, and we look forward to meeting workers from all over Ireland on Saturday 29th September in Croke Park.”
