Jobs Minister Richard Bruton has launched details of a major careers event in Dublin next month.

The event will take place over two days at Dublin’s Mansion House on September 10 and 11 with 50 Irish and international companies, professional bodies, educators, recruiters and enterprise organisations in attendance.

Major multinational organisations such as Amazon, Intel, Deloitte, Pramerica and Ericsson will be exhibiting at Career Zoo and will be available to the 10,000 visitors that are expected to attend.

The first Career Zoo held in Ireland last January was attended by 7,000 candidates.

Minister Richard Bruton said such events "can help create a new future, not only for the workers and the companies involved, but also for our economy".

“If we are to get out of this crisis, we must not only be highly ambitious about the number of jobs we can create in Ireland, but also ensure that we have skilled candidates available to fill the positions that are available.

"A series of recent reports have indicated that vacancies for skilled professionals exist across the economy, particularly in IT, and a key challenge for government is to ensure that our education and training infrastructures can respond to this need," the Minister said.
