Hosted at The Convention Centre in Dublin on 15 October, Career Zoo’s array of attending companies have begun listing the jobs they will try to fill at the event.

Bank of Ireland – with over 11,000 staff nationwide – will be recruiting for a variety of roles at the event, including positions in fintech and cybersecurity.

BMS will be hiring scientists, process engineers, manufacturing associates, QA specialists, QC analysts, automation engineers and maintenance technicians.

BMS is in the process of building a state of the art, large-scale biologics manufacturing facility in Cruiserath, announcing the 400-job, $900m expansion in late 2014.

About 350 to 400 scientists, engineers, bioprocess operators, quality specialists and other skilled professionals are expected to work at the Dublin facility when construction is finished.

EY has open positions in tech, IT and cyber, audit, tax and corporate finance, HR, marketing, legal, and project management areas.

Pramerica’s role-seeking areas include financial services, legal, software, actuarial and leadership, while DarkMatter, a new partner with Career Zoo, wants to fill hundreds of jobs across its operation.

Headquartered in the UAE, the cybersecurity specialist firm has vacancies in areas such as cyber network defence, testing and validation, research, infrastructure, governance, risk and compliance.

Brian Ó hOisín, director of Career Zoo, said: “We’re delighted that so many companies are returning as repeat sponsors of Career Zoo.

“The feedback we’re getting from employers is that they’re finding and hiring really excellent candidates at our events – and that’s why they keep coming back.

“We’re blown away by the quality of jobs available. There are so many exciting opportunities for candidates.

“Whether you want to live in the capital city, travel abroad or relocate to a regional hub, you’ll be able to find excellent job opportunities at Career Zoo that suit your individual needs.”
