West Cork chapter of Grow Remote launches

A West Cork chapter of Grow Remote is being launched by West Cork’s four digital hubs – Ludgate, Skibbereen, Brookpark Business Centre, Dunmanway, Bantry Bayworks, Bantry and the new Mix-Co working hub in Clonakilty.

In operation since 2018, Grow Remote is a national non-for-profit community organisation, which promotes the concept of remote working to employers and employees. The organisation, which through events and an ever-increasing network of ‘Local Chapters’, builds a remote working ecosystem and connection between remote jobs, businesses and organisations, now has over 2,000 members throughout Ireland.

 The Chapter in West Cork will be known as Grow Remote West Cork and continue to build on supporting the growth of local communities throughout West Cork.

Local chapters are a great place to connect with other remote workers locally and to help others in your local community find employment, drive the repopulation and economy of your local area and participate locally together. 

The West Cork chapter will host its first event on the first Friday of the month in February (February 4) 11am virtually, and every first Friday of the month thereafter. They will also be holding offline and online events for their local and West Cork community throughout the year.  Anyone is welcome to attend. You will find the FREE event on Eventbrite (GrowRemoteWestCorkVirtualCoffeeMorning) or feel free to contact your local hub.  

As well as offering a great networking opportunity, the event on February 4  will have local presentations from West Cork’s four digital hubs. Guest speaker Donal Kearney from national level Grow Remote will be sharing how Grow Remote works and how to get connected and set up on the various platforms.

The West Cork monthly and quarterly events will be open to everyone, from local business organisations, local politicians, employers, current remote workers, jobseekers, anyone interested in keeping people working in West Cork and the economic and social benefits that follow.
