Youth Employment Resource

Macra Youth Employment Resource

Macra provides a free e-book for young people seeking employment which is available here, on the Macra na Feirme website. The ebook gives practical advice for those seeking employment, or hoping to climb the ladder, during the current economic climate. The resource was written for Macra by Fidelma Wallace and Liam Horan of Sli Nua Careers, a Galway-based career guidance company.

The Apprentice judge, Brian Purcell, helped Macra launch the e-book. Speaking at the launch he said, “The future of our economy lies in the rural and agricultural heartlands of Ireland. The fact that we are already world leaders in the food and agri-business sectors proves this but I think we are only scratching our potential here. I have admired Macra for a long time for their innovative thinking and never standing still ethos and other agri-representative groups should look to them more for inspiration and innovative ideas such as this new initiative which will benefit their young members”.

The employment ebook is available for download here and it is open to Macra members and the general public.
