Mayo’s Young Unemployed prepare for An Garda Síochána Recruitment Drive Print

Over fifty of Mayo's young unemployed participated in a one day preparation for aptitude test workshop held in Mulranny Park Hotel, Co Mayo. on Wednesday 16th October 2013 in anticipation of the announcement of the reopening of the recruitment for An Garda Siochána

The training workshop was planned and coordinated by South West Mayo Development Company in conjunction with the Achill Local Employment Service and was supported by the Local and Community Development Programme.

Professionals from Career Services Ltd, an Irish education company since 1987, delivered the workshop. They are specialists in helping students into competitive careers such as An Garda Síochána; the Defence Forces; the Prison Service and Fire Services and ESB Apprentice Programme

Guest Speaker at the workshop was Garda Nicholas Freyne, a young Mayo Garda currently stationed in Castlebar. Garda Freyne gave the workshop participants an insight into his own Garda recruitment experience and his first years in the Garda Siochana.

South West Mayo Development Company, through the delivery of the Local and Community Development Programme, is working in an innovative and creative way to best prepare the young unemployed in the area for employment.
