It was announced yesterday that the US life assurance group, Metlife is to exhibit and recruit at Jobs Expo Galway on Saturday, 11 February.
Towards the end of 2016, MetLife announced that they are to add more than 200 jobs at their new global technology campus in Galway during the first half of 2017.
The company’s Dublin office opened in 2006 with just ten employees. Since then, Dublin has become the operational headquarters of the company’s Western and Central Europe Region. Around 300 people in work at this office.
Therefore, once the new campus is operational, MetLife in Ireland will have grown to more than 500 employees. The Galway campus will support MetLife’s digital and innovation potential.
MetLife offers a broad range of career opportunities in the following areas:
• Information Technology
• Internal Audit
Other companies recruiting at Jobs Expo Galway will cover a number of industries. These include growth sectors such as science, technology, engineering and construction as well as long established sectors such as education, hospitality, retail sales, healthcare and more.
The hugely successful Jobs Expo has run in Dublin, Cork and Belfast since 2012 and has introduced thousands of jobseekers to hundreds of companies in a variety of sectors. It gives attendees the chance to meet companies in an informal setting, find out about them and discover career opportunities in sectors they may not have previously considered.
For companies, Jobs Expo streamlines the recruitment process, introducing them to a huge number of potential employees.
Like the events in Dublin, Cork and Belfast, Jobs Expo Galway will also include Jobs Expo’s very popular Career Clinic. Over the course of the event, jobseekers will be able to meet one-on-one with career coaches. The coaches will offer expert professional development advice and help jobseekers land their dream job. The Career Clinic is free to all attendees.
Organiser, Kevin Branigan of Careers Unlimited says, "It’s really important to us that each Jobs Expo features companies recruiting for a variety of roles. We want there to be something for everyone, whether they are looking for an entry-level or a senior position. Whether you are a graduate or a school leaver, highly skilled, unemployed or looking for new opportunities, there’ll be something for you."
