The Balmoral Show is one of the cornerstone events in the Irish hospitality industry. Taking place over 4 days each May in Lisburn, the festival showcases the best from food, drink and hospitality businesses across the island.
From food producers and farmers through to restaurants, hotels and bars, many hospitality businesses flock to the show to promote their business to potential customers. With plenty of food stalls at the event, customers can sample the best that the hospitality business has to offer!
Every year, the show uses a full events team to plan and deliver the best experience possible for attendees of the 4 day event. This means that there are plenty of opportunities for events staff to fill the roles that are available for the run up to and duration of the event.
If you are looking for a job in hospitality, the show may be an excellent place to network with potential employers. Make a list of businesses who are exhibiting that may be of interest to you, and head down to the show to chat to the representatives at each stall. You never know what opportunities might be available, so it’s worth asking!
Most business owners will be at the stands on the day, meaning that you will have the opportunity to chat to the top decision maker in most of the businesses about your job prospects, putting you at a massive advantage by showing them that you have initiative.
