Morris Industries was part of the Saskatchewan Jobs Mission delegation searching for skilled labour at the Working Abroad Expo in Dublin and a job fair in Cork, Ireland.
“A wide mix of people from new grads to retirement age looking for a new beginning and opportunities, many people had solid work backgrounds on their CV’s”, says Kevin Lone, human resources manager for Morris Industries. ” It was nearly impossible to find a cab driver or airport customs person who didn’t know about the Saskatchewan group that was coming.”
The exhibition in Dublin opened one hour earlier and closed one hour later than scheduled in attempts to allow more people access. Local news stories indicated that over 12,000 people attended and over 5,000 people were turned away. Morris was one of eighty companies that recruited at the event.
