Hotel Recruitment Fair

NEWKD is hosting a free, interactive, Hotel Recruitment event on Wednesday 25th March 2020, which will include The Rose Hotel, The Ballygarry House Hotel and Spa, The Brandon Hotel, The Wilde Hotel Ballybunion, The Marine Hotel Ballybunion, Ballyroe Heights Hotel, The Ashe Hotel, Manor West Hotel.

This event could be best described as a ‘Speed-dating Recruitment fair’ for the prospective Employer and Job Seeker in a one-to-one informal setting. It is a “no CV” day that aims to bring people face-to-face with potential Employers. Organiser Eibhlis Hanrahan of NEWKD says “What we’re aiming to do is match people with people. Curriculum Vitae’s are a list of your learned skills but do not illustrate qualities such as motivation, enthusiasm and attitude etc.”

Pre-Registration for this event is compulsory and may be done by appointment only with Eibhlis Hanrahan at or Louise Lyons Closing date for registration is Friday the 13th March 2020. “Our aim is to find out which areas candidates are interested in so they can meet personnel at the relevant hotels and departments they may be best suited to”, said Eibhlis.


Background for Event

The jobs market has changed dramatically over the last few years. More and more people are looking for part-time or flexible hours, especially parents who want to return to work but be able to do school runs, pick-ups and drop offs. It also offers people who may not have worked in the hotel sector before the chance to see what opportunities exist for them in the sector and previous experience is not a requirement – “people just need an interest in learning and openness to new experiences” says Eibhlis.

“This event gives potential employees the chance to meet with a large number of employers over the course of the day and gives both a chance to get to know each other in advance of entering into

a formal work situation” says co-ordinator Louise Lyons.
