Northwest by Northwest!
All roads pointed Northwest - for a special event in Dublin - which saw agencies and key employers from Donegal, Sligo and Leitrim outline the many life and career opportunities available for professionals.
IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and the Western Development Commission collaborated with a single message: you can land a global career with a leading company and enjoy the best of ‘local living’ by moving to the Northwest.
StoryLab handled PR for the event at Dublin’s Westbury hotel which attracted the interest of media including; RTE, Newstalk, the Irish Independent, Leitrim Observer, Sligo Champion, and Donegal’s Highland Radio.
The media coverage ensured a full house for the evening which saw industries represented including biopharma, medtech, advanced manufacturing, technology and international financial services.
More than 20 global multinationals and leading Irish companies attended ‘Northwest in the City’ including: Optum, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), AbbVie, VistaMed, SL Controls, Cora Systems, Overstock, Avenue, and FinTrU.
Working patterns have seen seismic changes in recent years, with a career and life in the Northwest proving increasingly attractive for senior professionals.
On the day of the event, Newstalk Business Breakfast presenter Joe Lynam conducted a live interview with WDC interim CEO Allan Mulrooney and CEO of Sligo-headquarted employer SL Controls, Keith Moran.
