ok I know this is a shot in the dark but its worth a try as it looks like DH will have to move to Dublin or Cork.... Does anyone know of any electrician jobs in the west that are available??? Even any factory/production line jobs?? IF DH doesnt get something this week he will have to move and our first baby is due in January. Im very upset and stressed about it. We have tried fas and agencies etc - no joy. He will do anything at this point. He's a hard worker and this is such a low point for us. I hope I dont annoy you all with this - just want to try everything and everywhere

hi liv. couldn't read your post and not reply, you sound so upset. i'm afraid i don't know of any jobs available... but i was in a similar situation at around your stage of pregnancy and i remember how scary and stressful it was. it ended up that i stayed in our home- also in the west-and oh had to move to cork. it was so so hard being apart, but once i was off work we moved to cork. we'll stay here for the duration of my mat leave and then hope he'll get something at home. best of luck in the job search but know that things will work out for you in the end. pm me if you want to chat at any stage! :action31 :action32

I'll keep my ear to the ground for you Livdec2007. The Advertiser is out tomorrow but I'm sure it will be full of people who are looking for work. Chin up. Hopefully it won't come to your DH having to move away. :action32

My DH's brothers are both electricians, I'll ask them. Mind you, one of them was in Galway and moved to Dublin then as the work here dried up and he is saying that they are letting also lots of Dublin lads go now. The other is working at the gas terminal in North Mayo (you know the one with all controversy) I know they were recruiting, would that be of interest?
