Career Zoo returns to Dublin on Saturday February 21st at the Convention Centre Dublin.

There will be a good range of tech related opportunities at the event. Sign up to attend here.

Here are some of the features to look out for at the event.


1: The Techfast Club – Ireland’s tech sector is going from strength to strength

Irish tech firms are flourishing and the number of start-ups continues to grow. With each new venture comes additional opportunities for job seekers to join this fast-growing sector and there are hundreds of such offers available at Career Zoo in indigenous tech companies.

This February’s Tech Town showcase the work of innovative Irish tech companies and the unique career opportunities they have to offer in developing their game changing technologies. From our 2014 events, we found that 55% of attendees were seeking opportunities in the tech sector, which again makes Tech Town a big draw for attendees.

Irish Tech Companies who are looking to recruit at Tech Town @ Career Zoo include: Aer Lingus, Version 1, IT Alliance, System Dynamics and Ocuco, Sigmar, Auxillion, Zutec and Terminal 4.

New for 2015 and developed with Python Ireland, a dedicated Coder Hack Space will be a prominent feature of Tech Town. Delegates bring their coding problems with them on the day to speak with a peer. Languages represented include: Python, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Java, Clojure, F# and .NET as well as statistical programming languages.

2: New Finance and FinTech Zone – Tech skills aren’t just for the Tech sector

Ireland’s banking sector is once again growing and like many other industries it is re-evaluating the way in which it does business in order to keep up with the digital revolution and the opportunities that it offers.

New to Career Zoo, the International Financial District will see Bank of Ireland hire at least 10 talented people on the day itself, in addition to other roles on offer with the group. Rather than focusing on the job specification, Bank of Ireland is looking for people with great skills and great personalities.

Companies hiring at the International Finance District include: Bank of Ireland, PWC, J.P. Morgan, Fidelity Investments and IFDS.

3: BioCluster Zone @ Career Zoo – Ireland’s dynamic pharma and life sciences sectors

Ireland is globally recognised as a centre of excellence for the life sciences industry with the industry employing over 50,000 direct employees. Eighteen of the world’s top 20 pharmaceutical companies have operations in Ireland and 6 out of the top 10 top blockbuster drugs are manufactured in Ireland. The state has also recently invested €15m into a new €85m life sciences venture capital fund that is hoped will create new jobs in the sector.

Following its highly successful launch at Career Zoo’s September event, BioCluster Zone is returning to showcase opportunities in the life sciences sector. Employers looking to recruit for the Pharma, Medical Devices and general Life Sciences sectors.

Companies hiring at BioCluser include: AbbVie, Alexion, BioMarin, Bristol Myers Squibb, PPD and  Regeneron

BioCluster is supported by the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) provides a wide range of training and education programmes including the Springboard programme which is free-of-charge to those who are currently unemployed.
