Interested in Working in Construction? Then come in and Talk

Workers in Grangegorman

On Wednesday 27th February anyone interested in working in the construction sector will have the opportunity to come and meet the contractors who are currently working on the Grangegorman re-development.


The aim of the ‘Meet the Contractor’ event is to bring people interested in working in construction together with contractors on the Grangegorman Development who are hiring.  This is an informal event and all are welcome.  There’s no need to register – just drop in for a cup of tea and a chat.  All welcome, whether unemployed or in employment.


Speaking about the event, the Chief Executive Officer of the Grangegorman Development Agency, Ger Casey said “construction has really ramped up in Grangegorman in the past few months. We are currently on track to deliver two substantial buildings for TU Dublin in September 2020 and we have a number of projects at design stage. In order to deliver these projects contractors need a lot of new people. Events such as this give both the contractor and people in the area the opportunity to meet and hopefully to find out if they can work together.”


In addition to hiring contractors, there will be advice and support on CVs/job applications/interviews, social welfare information, details of the TU Dublin free Access to Apprenticeship programme, and information on the wider construction sector plus free refreshments.


The ‘Meet the Contractor’ event is organised by the Grangegorman Labour and Learning Forum (GLLF), Sisk FCC and the Grangegorman Development Agency with participation from Grangegorman Development contractors, the Dublin North West Area Partnership, DEASP/Intreo, TU Dublin Access to Apprenticeship, and the Construction Industry Federation.


The event is taking place in St. Laurence’s Church on the Grangegorman Campus and runs from 9am to 12pm. For further information contact Kathleen McCann on 01 4024262/ 087 7391602 or e-mail her at
