Almost 2,000 event-based roles are now up for grabs following the launch of a nationwide recruitment drive to fill positions at festivals, gigs, football, and hurling matches being held across the country over the summer months.

At 1,200, the lion’s share of the roles will be Dublin-based, while 250 positions will be available in Cork, and around 450 jobs will be available across Kildare, Galway, and Donegal.

 

Leading recruitment specialists Excel Recruitment say they are looking for candidates to fill a myriad of positions including bar staff, cashiers, waiting staff, kitchen staff, chefs, and cleaners, in various locations in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Kildare, and Donegal.

 

Popular events that staff could be working at include the Punchestown Festival, the Galway and Ballinrobe races, the Trinity Summer Series – which will feature headline acts such as Paul Weller, Tom Odell, and The Villagers; and the Fairview Park concerts – which will see Fat Boy Slim, The Coronas and The Saw Doctors, amongst others, take to the stage.

 

Shane McLave, Managing Director of Excel Recruitment said this year’s recruitment drive is going to be one of the biggest they’ve embarked on to date for the events industry:

 

We are looking at a busier than ever season for our events clients. Ireland’s live music industry is increasingly attracting top international acts – creating exciting job opportunities for those wishing to work in such events.

 

Mr McLave continued:

 

The nature of the work means that the hours can be flexible, and short and long contracts are on offer – a setup which is often very attractive to Ireland’s student population. That said, it’s not only students who can secure some work for the summer – we are recruiting people with all levels of experience.

 

Ireland has the talented hard-working workforce needed to bolster these events and to ensure we maintain the standards that Ireland is renowned for when it comes to live arts and entertainment”.

 

A recruitment open day for the positions is being held in Excel Recruitment’s Dublin Office on Wednesday, April 24th from 3pm – 7.30pm. Last year’s event recruitment open day saw more than 700 people line up around the block at Excel Recruitment’s offices at Mary’s Abbey in Dublin.

 

The recruitment specialists are welcoming all applicants who are interested in working at one of the nationwide summer events to register, as long as they are over the age of 18. The positions being advertised are largely temporary summer jobs, though both short- and long-term contracts are available.
