Agri Careers on Thursday 14 February 2019 in the Main Hall, RDS promises to be a one-stop-shop for all the agriculture and agri-food recruitment needs of both employers and employees.

The Agri Careers Expo, run by the Irish Farmers Journal and Devenish will be back with a bang on Thursday 14 February 2019 in the Main Hall, RDS. In March 2017, 7,000 people turned up to vie for the 1,120 jobs available on the day with approximately 50 exhibitors. This year, we aim to bring more exhibitors, more jobs and more people, and we’re very excited at the prospect of a bigger and even more exciting event.

The success of every sector is dependent on its ability to attract and retain new talent. Irish agriculture is no different. If we are to harvest the opportunities that will undoubtedly present themselves in the years ahead, we must be in a position to compete in an employment market that is now full of opportunities. While there is no doubt that the sector can compete in this space, it is important that the career diversity that the agricultural sector can offer across all skill levels is properly communicated.

In this regard, we are delighted to once again bring you our Agri Careers event, designed to showcase just what our sector has to offer, for those looking to work on farms to those with ambitions to travel the world. The event will once again bring together – under one roof – individuals who are passionate about their careers in the agri-food sector alongside some of the world’s most innovative and successful agri-food companies that are actively seeking to recruit.

This is our third time to host this event and we look forward to seeing you there.
