Careers event at Valley Leisure Centre

The Rathcoole Neighbourhood Renewal Partnership (RNRP) is hosting a ‘Careers and Enterprise Awareness Event’ in the Valley Leisure Centre today, Thursday, March 1.

The event will target 16 to 25-year-olds who are unemployed and provide information on careers, employability and training.

Working closely with employers, training providers and statutory agencies, the RNRP believes this event is very timely given the current economic climate and recent rise in unemployment. With many of the borough’s big employers and organisations on hand to offer advice on job vacancies and routes to employment, it is anticipated that this will provide fresh hope for local people.

Organisations such as North City Training and Northern Regional College will also be on hand to provide information and advice on training courses, while Mallusk Enterprise Park will be present to offer advice and guidance to those budding entrepreneurs wishing to start up their own business.

The event which will be attended by representatives from the Citizens’ Advice Bureau and employers such as Tesco, B&Q, CITB Construction Skills, Corr’s Corner Hotel and Rhyme Time Nursery will highlight the support that is available to jobseekers on their doorstep.

The event will run from 10.30am to 2.30pm on March 1 and if you would like any further information on it, do contact Sara Barkley on Tel: 028 9034 0197 or Emma Rea on Tel: 028 9034 0053.
