On Saturday, 11 February 2017 the Jobs Expo Galway event will take place which is a great opportunity to find a job or improve your networking in Galway. Jobs Expo is Ireland’s leading jobs and recruitment fair that puts job seekers directly in contact with employers. Since 2012, over 65,000 job-seekers have attended their various exhibitions.
Each year different companies recruit directly at this fair. This year will be MetLife, the US firm among the largest global providers of insurance, annuities, and employee benefit programs, with 90 million customers in over 60 countries. MetLife wants to add over 200 jobs at their new global technology campus in Galway in the following areas: Actuarial, Compliance, Finance, Information Technology, Internal Audit, Legal, Operations, Risk and Treasury. Once again a big company is investing and is showing the health of Ireland’s economy, a fertile ground for finding new job opportunities or starting your own business.
It had been announced last week, Ernst & Young is going to create 270 job positions in Ireland. These jobs will be opened in Dublin and Galway and that is part due to the opening of two offices in Dublin and Galway. One of the aims is to increase a bit the number of graduate people and also to recruit professional employees “from various disciplines including accounting, finance, engineering, IT, consultancy and business”. As the capital, Dublin will rationally welcome the biggest part of the new employees and for the beginning it’s 25 different job offers that people will have the opportunity to apply for in Galway and more precisely on Eyre Square.
The international origin of our clients has always been one of the main features and strengths of our Company.
During 2015 we noted an increase in the number of people we welcomed in our cities.
When we analyzed the records to better understand the figures, we observed a data that surprised us: in 2015 we welcomed people from over 50 countries all around the world!
That’s great news for us! We have always worked with international clients, but this year we have been more international than ever!
Here’s the infographic we prepared to show all our numbers!
EazyCity is delighted to announce further expansion with a joint venture in Galway. Our newest partners, Laura & Tancredi have started operating under the EazyCity brand this month.
Who are Laura and Tancredi? After working in project management, tourism and engineering, last year they decided to move with their two sons to Galway, fascinated by the vibe of the City of the Tribes.
They experienced the warm welcome of Galway and their family settled well in the community. That’s one of the reasons they decided to partner with EazyCity and start to help others who wish to spend time in Galway whether for long or short-term.
Laura and Tancredi are enthusiastic about this new adventure, and eager to develop further and faster EazyCity’s offer in the city. They have already started acquiring new accommodations in Galway and are ready to take your bookings now!
It is common to hear people playing instruments or singing in the streets of Galway when a ray of sunshine appears and that is a part of the city life and culture.
Some residents complained about buskers and the high noise made by their performances.
That’s why the City Council of Galway suggested establishing a code of conduct to be followed by the buskers. Actually, the complaint was more about equipment as amplifiers. With that code of conduct this material would be forbidden and if someone will ask a busker to lower the volume, the artist will have to. Moreover, a performance won’t exceed 2 hours.
After a trial period of one year the City Council will decide if a by-law will be set up and that is what the businesses owners in Galway are asking for.
Win a week for 2 people in London, Dublin or Cork!

The Aran Islands are an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, on the mouth of Galway Bay. The three islands are reachable thanks to a ferry service that leaves daily from various towns in Connemara and thanks to some daily flights.
Aer Arann was the company that has provided the plane service from Inverin to the Islands for the last 45 years. The company has recently lost the tender for the service for the next 4 years, to the helicopter company Executive Helicopters.
The inhabitants of the islands didn’t react well to the news: the main concerns are about the future of the employees of Aer Arann and about the change from a fixed winged aircraft to helicopters.
On top of it, Executive Helicopters plans to fly from Galway Airport in Carnmore, near Galway City and around 50 km from Rossaveal port, where the ferry from the islands leaves.
Moving the service from Inverin to Galway means that in case the scheduled flight is cancelled, the passengers would have to drive for an hour to reach the nearest ferry.
It has been reported that the winner of the tender has been announced before Executive Helicopters signed the contract with Galway Airport, and there’s still no certainty if the service will fly from Carnmore.
A special meeting of Galway County Council is scheduled for next week, to discuss the contract and the future of the aircraft service for Aran Islands.
