Participating companies looking for retail staff include shops such as Best Menswear, Brown Thomas, JD Sports, Massimo Dutti, McCabes, Next, North Face, Pandora, Schuh, Selected, Specsavers, TK Maxx and Timberland.

Meanwhile, food outlets such as KFC, McDonalds, Mad Egg and O'Briens are also seeking employees.

The job fair, will take place today (27 September) and tomorrow and will take place in Level -3 of the Green Car Park to allow for social distancing.

Job seekers are encouraged to visit the centre between 4pm-8pm on both days to hear about some of the current opportunities available.

The shopping centre said that there will also be opportunities to speak with tenants across the retail and food and beverage sectors in the centre, as well as contract partners from the Dundrum operations team.

It seems as though many Irish businesses are preparing for a fairly busy period this Christmas with both Smyths Toys and Penneys both recently issuing warnings over possible supply shortages.

Smyths Toys urged customers to "shop early for Christmas" this year amid global supply issues "to avoid disappointment" as shipping and container shortages will likely lead to supply issues.

Meanwhile, Penneys also issued a warning to Irish customers as autumn and winter inventory is expected to be delayed due to freight and port disruptions.
