The Irish Co-operative Organisation Society (ICOS), latter through the ICOS Skillnet, together with its co-operative member organisations are inviting job seekers to a free ‘Foot in The Door’ training and advisory event in Thurles on Thursday, August 28th.
Launched in May by ICOS Skillnets and Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and the Marine, Simon Coveney, the ‘Foot in The Door’ initiative is targeting potential new employees for the Irish Agri-food sector.
‘Foot in The Door’ events are happening nationwide, with Agri-food Co-Ops from each region taking part. The Thurles event will include a jobs advice clinic being provided by ICOS and co-ops including Dairygold Co-operative Society, Kerry Group, Cork Co-Operative Marts, and North Cork Co-operative Creameries.
Mr Billy Goodburn, ICOS Skillnets Manager stated: “The future growth and expansion of the Irish Agri-food industry requires additional human resources. In particular the dairy sector has considerable potential, given the industry expansion agenda that exists around the removal of milk quotas next year.”
This forthcoming event in Thurles will take place at the Anner Hotel, on Thursday, August 28th, 2014 from 2.00 pm – 5.30 pm.
NOTE: Advance registration is essential. To register to attend, candidates should please contact Breeda Flood or Billy Goodburn on Tel: 01 613 1348 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
