We are proud to announce our new community partnership with the Festival Of Curiosity, Ireland’s most exciting and innovative festival of science, technology & culture. The Festival of Curiosity, now entering its 3rd year, will take place over 4 days, from the 23rd- 26th of July.
During the festival you will find free day-time adventures in science, play and curious technology for all the family. By night, there will be interactive performances, shows, debates and events with scientific minds from Ireland and abroad. The Festival, founded by Vincent McCarthy & Ellen Byrne, is a non- profit organisation which relies on volunteers to help out with the 90+ fun-filled events of the festival.
Volunteers are very important to the festival. They bring a genuine community spirit and help connect us to the curious heart of Dublin. They also bring buckets of enthusiasm and inspiration to our 90+ events. That’s why our volunteer partner is so important and why we chose Verify Recruitment. Verify Recruitment have experience in working with a variety of clients in the science and technology industry and identifying innovative people that can deliver on a company’s needs. We are very excited to be working with Verify Recruitment as our Volunteer Partner for The Festival of Curiosity 2015, as they are the ideal partner in recruiting a team of volunteers that will help create our best festival yet.
