Jobs Fair Highlights Vibrancy of Contact Centre Industry in Ireland

Over 600 jobs on offer at industry fair

As you may have seen in last week's press the spotlight was firmly on the Irish Contact Centre and Outsourcing Industry when 26 companies took part in a jobs fair in Dublin with more than 600 vacancies on offer. The jobs fair highlighted the strength of our industry sector with job opportunties on offer with a range of companies including Accenture, Airtricity, Big Fish, Cook Medical, Dell, ebay, FBD, Open24, PayPal, Sage Ireland, Three, UPC and Zynga. In addition several BPO companies participated in the fair including Arise, Concentrix, Performance Marketing, VoxPro and Zevas. Over 500 candidates attended the fair. Exhibitors were impressed with the calibre of candidates and the interest in our sector. The CCMA jobs fair highlighted the career opportunities within our sector. One of our goals was to encourage those who have never worked in our sector to come and learn more, this message was well received with many attendees coming who have previously worked in the retail and hospitality sector. A big thank you on behalf of the CCMA to all our member companies who participated in the event and to the candidates who took the time to come along and meet with us.
