Slaney Foods were invited to participate as guest speakers at the Waterford Institute of Technology, Ag. Science Careers Day on the 5th of April 2016.

Dermot Hynes, Slaney Foods Group Human Resources Manager spoke to a group of 100 students about potential careers within the meat industry and how to prepare for the future to ensure students optimise their chances of securing employment after graduation.  All speakers shared their own careers experiences to date and passed on useful hints and advice to ensure students have the best chance of securing the role they want to pursue or maybe decide to continue on with their studies, as some speakers did.  There was great interaction with the students and many questions and viewpoints given both during and after the session.

It was a successful and beneficial day for the students as they face into the jobs market to start out their careers.
