Mid East Regional Action Plan for Jobs Implementation Committee

While the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation oversees the Regional Action Plans for Jobs at national level each Regional Action Plan is monitored by a Regional Implementation Committee at regional level.

Enterprise Champions

Many of the actions set out in the Regional APJs are delivered by public sector bodies acting collaboratively. Some of the actions require active engagement with the private sector so strong business representation is required.

To this end, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation has appointed locally based enterprise champions to each Regional Implementation Committee to work with the public bodies on the implementation of the Plans, including the identification of new actions to be added to the Plans as they evolve.

Eamonn Sinnott, General Manager, Intel Ireland, Co. Kildare chairs the committee. The other Enterprise Champions in the Mid East are John Cunningham, Managing Director of Epicom Food Ltd., Co. Meath and Kate Brosnan, Vice President of HR, Kerry EMEA Region, Co. Kildare.
