“Committed to the Community”



A series of 4 free webinars, the Tea Break Talks offer a unique insight into working within the Hospitality, Retail, Administration and Caring sectors.

Each seminar will focus on a specific employment area and will include practical information & expertise direct from those working, training, and hiring in the four different areas. This provides an opportunity to hear from both an Employer/Business perspective and from a current employee.  This is your chance to explore all the different employment options in your preferred career and most importantly discover the answer to the age-old question ‘what are they looking for and how can I get hired!’

The Tea Break Talks will also feature information on the skills & qualifications needed for each sector, relevant training options and West Limerick Resources support services available to assist you in preparing and applying for employment.

The webinars are free of charge and can be accessed from any computer or smart device.

Each session will run for 45 minutes from 11am on Tuesday mornings in June as follows:

June  8    Caring (including Elderly and Childcare)
