CIF Conference 2016

On Thursday the 6th of October our team of specialists will be attending the CIF Conference held in The Hogan Suite Croke Park Conference Centre Dublin. Here is what a few members of team had to say about the ever growing and changing industry and how the services provided by Servisource can benefit you.

Servisource Construction:

The Irish construction industry output is to be 42% higher in 2016 than in 2012, according to the Society of Chartered Surveyors. Construction skills are once again in demand as the supply of quantity surveyors, project managers and senior engineers tightens. There are a number of obstacles standing in the way of this and the most commonly mentioned trend for 2016 was the continued effects of the skilled worker shortage. A significant portion of employees who left the industry during the recession never returned, and companies are still struggling to find workers at all levels to properly staff their teams.

The overall value of construction projects commenced saw a significant increase in the first half of 2016, rising by €1.12 billion to €3.69 billion when compared to the same period in 2015 according to the Building Information Index. This figure represents a very strong increase of +44% in the value of actual construction activity for the first six months of 2016 when compared to the first half of 2015.

Compiled from real time planning and project information by Building Information Ireland, the Building Information Index is measured by examining in detail the two distinct phases of a construction project. The first phase relates to project Commencements, which are projects where construction activity has commenced on the specific site. The second phase, which is an excellent measurement in real time of the sentiment in the sector, relates to project Applications. Both phases are measured for the first half of 2016 and compared with the same period in 2015, for comparative purposes.

Hence there has never been a better time to work in the Construction sector in Ireland and we here at Servisource Recruitment have a number of highly skilled positions available including Project Managers, Site Engineers, Quantity’s Surveyors and Contracts Managers and trades related roles nationwide. We understand that it is crucial for our clients and our sector, that we attract the best talent to suit your business.

Servisource Recruitment Virtual Jobs and Career Fair on Facebook

Servisource Recruitment Virtual Jobs and Career Fair on Facebook

facebookcork

Throughout 2014 Servisource Recruitment successfully ran a nationwide Jobs and Career Fair taking in many locations such as Dublin, Dundalk, Drogheda, Newry, Belfast, Cork, Galway, Tullamore, Limerick, Sligo, Waterford and the UK. Each event offered the general public access to FREE CV Tips, Interview Tips, Motivational Tips, Using Social Media sites to find employment and advice on Preparing Your On-line Profiles for Job Searching Plus access to apply for Roles and Healthcare Training that Servisource Recruitment & Healthcare currently had available. With such a fantastic turnout at each event we were given the opportunity to survey attendees on what they feel would make it a better experience for them and how we could improve on our offering. A common topic of feedback we received was that it wasn’t always possible for candidates to travel to our chosen jobs fair locations with many stating travel costs and working commitments as the reason. Taking all of the feedback on board this year we have decided that along with the physical jobs fair we would also offer our candidates the option of visiting a virtual jobs and career fair. After discussing and analysing our candidates on-line activity we came to the decision that Facebook was the perfect option for hosting this virtual jobs and career event. Our main thoughts were to make attendance to the event as easy as possible so that people could login from any location on any device whether desktop, tablet or mobile phone. Given the popularity and ease of use of Facebook we feel it is the perfect fit for our very first online jobs and career fair event.

On Wednesday 28th January from 8am to 8pm we are turning the Servisource Recruitment Facebook page into a virtual jobs and career fair. Anyone wishing to attend simply has to login to Facebook and visit the Servisource Recruitment Facebook page. On arrival you will immediately be able to speak to an experienced recruiter in the booth of your choice. Booth 1 will be for all Healthcare jobs and will be staffed by Karen Melia. Booth 2 will be for all Home Care jobs and will be staffed by Jenny McShane. Booth 3 will be for all other roles and will be staffed by Catherine Dorian. With over 100 jobs and many more being added to our jobs board on a daily basis we are sure that we can help you find the perfect job.
