The Midlands — Offering the Best of Both Worlds

MidlandJobs.ie acknowledges the hard work and dedication of the Mullingar Chamber and Careers Expo Committee in arranging such a landmark event for the region.

This event is a testament to the attractiveness of the Midlands as a place to come and live and work, especially the key towns and satellites of Mullingar, Tullamore, Portlaoise, Longford and Athlone. Great strides have been taken over the past ten years to develop the Midlands as a genuine alternative to the city regions and even more so in recent years with better road and rail connectivity as well as remote working opportunities.

The region offers a growing number of world class companies offering well paid employment away from the expense and hassle of the city. Sustainability in how we live has become a massive theme in recent years and working locally offers an opportunity to avail of a better live/work balance and spend more time doing the things you want.

MidlandJobs.ie (and also this jobs Expo) are all about simplifying the job-search for the local jobseeker. Your ideal job could be right here in your local town, possibly the last place you might have expected to find it — check on www.midlandjobs.ie for more.
