THE first ever ‘recruitment festival’, RecFest, will be held in Tralee next month.

RecFest will take place on Thursday, March 23 between 4pm and 7pm on Abbey Street (between Yummy Cafe and The Abbey Inn), with stalls taken by businesses from all around Kerry lining the pedestrianised way.

RecFest Tralee, sponsored  by AIB, will allow graduates and employers from around the county to interact in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. It is a great way for graduates to see what is out there for them in Kerry, for both their career and social life.

Space will be provided for graduates to sit down with prospective employers, to chat and find out more about each other.

The initiative was launched by five students from IT Tralee in association with the HQ Tralee. Rosie Browne, Joe Monaghan, Dale Brosnan, Lisa O’Mahony and Ryan Delaney are the students involved in the project, who are currently on work placement with businesses in  HQ Tralee.

A themed afterparty will take place in the Abbey Inn, from 7pm. Tickets for the after party are free, and only available at the stalls on Bridge Street. There will be special drink promotions on the day, with a DJ providing music for the night.

Food will be provided by mobile catering, in keeping with the festival theme. The event is sponsored by AIB and offers plenty of opportunities for both graduates and businesses. For more information on the event, please email
