Careers fair to highlight 250,000 agri-food jobs in the RDS

Agri-food interests are joining forces to host Agri Careers in the RDS, Dublin, on March 3, the first such fair for the sector.

A one-stop-shop for agri-based employment, the fair will showcase some of the 250,000 jobs that are directly linked to agriculture, and featuring exhibitors recruiting in the sector, including vacancies in areas such as IT, accounting, marketing and human resources.

Students still deliberating over their CAO choices can meet with educational providers exhibiting on the day.

Irish Farmers Journal and Open Eir are the event’s principal organisers.

Carolan Lennon, wholesale managing director of Open Eir, and Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney helped launch the event in the Irish Farm Centre, Dublin.

They were joined at the launch by brothers Jim and Liam Woulfe.

Jim is CEO of Dairygold, while Liam is managing director of Grassland Agro.

They will be joined on the stage of Agri Careers by their brothers Michael, Richard and David who all work in agri-related industries.
