To help counteract the challenge of widespread skills shortages in the construction and property industries, Hays Construction & Property has announced it is investing in the development of Irish professionals. Its latest initiative is to offer industry professionals the chance to win a €5,000 bursary to be spent on undertaking accredited professional education courses to develop their knowledge and expand their skillset.
Mike McDonagh, Managing Director, Hays Ireland.
Mike McDonagh, Managing Director, Hays Ireland, says the bursary came about as the firm works with highly motivated construction professionals on a daily basis who regularly cite career development as a key career driver.
“In this employment market, upskilling and continual professional development can really set you apart from other candidates who are looking for that next step in their career,” he said. “The Hays Ireland €5,000 bursary is a great opportunity to upskill in your area and positively impact your career.”
The competition is open to all professionals working in the construction sector, whether they are starting out in the industry, want to take their career to the next level, or are considering changing their career entirely. The lucky winner of the bursary payment will receive consultation from experts at Hays on the training courses available to help them meet their career aspirations.
In 2018, Hays celebrated its 50th anniversary and has been operating in Ireland for over 20 years. Hays Ireland has grown to include over 100 recruiting specialists, working in offices in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway, who help both organisations and professionals develop and grow.
