Clonakilty Job Resource Centre is holding a Job Fair in O’Donovan Hotel, Pearse Street, Clonakilty on Thursday, February 27. The event, which takes place from 10am to 3pm, will enable people to meet local employers and support services and education bodies.

There will be a number of workshops running throughout the day including: Creative Arts, Networking and internet, Interview skills, Applying for a job and CV Writing Skills.

The Jobseekers resource centres (JRCs) are a one-stop shop for those seeking work and were set up in the last number of years with the support of the West Cork Development group project managed by Fergal Conlon.

There are currently six JRCs in the West Cork area — Bandon, Clonakilty, Kinsale, Skibbereen, Macroom and Bantry.

The purpose and goal of these resource centres is to enable proactive job seekers to assess their next steps — be it to find work, up-skill on a training programme or to further their work experience through work placements, volunteering or on a job bridge club.

The JRCs provide a free and confidential service to the unemployed; resource centres are manned by volunteers with a resource library on training providers, support services and jobs boards with a wealth of information about jobs in the local area.

Volunteers work on a one-to-one basis with clients and support clients seeking work by vetting their CV, by helping them to prepare for interviews or building on their interview skills.

The JRCs also provide access to information about support services for the unemployed, info on local training providers and opportunities for work.

The Job fair will enable jobseekers to reach out and network. Job hunting is difficult in these challenging times but the aim is to proactively support the job hunter.

If you have any questions or enquiries please call Clon JRC on 023 8859810.

Vikings talk in Clonakilty!

“The Viking Gold and Silver Hoards from County Cork” is the topic of the next Dúchas Clonakilty Heritage lecture on Thursday 22nd at the Parish Centre starting at 8pm.

It will be delivered by John Sheehan, senior lecturer in the Archaeology Department, UCC and a former member of the Heritage Council and the Board of the National Museum of Ireland.

The Vikings were an important presence in Ireland for over two centuries. As well as inflicting great terror they were also responsible for introducing urbanism and new economic systems to the country.

In this talk the focus will be on the economy, looking at the gold and silver hoards that were buried in Co. Cork. It will also explore how these hoards were discovered, what happened to them, and where they are now!
