Employers – Looking to recruit……………..

The Department of Social Protection offers a number of employer services to assist in recruitment. Our recruitment website www.jobsireland.ie is available to you to advertise your vacancy. We can match your job vacancy to our register of jobseekers. If required we can collect and screen C.V.’s. We also run dedicated recruitment events. This is a free service and is available to any employer.


Have you considered taking on an intern………….

JobBridge is the national internship scheme that provides work experience placements for 6 and 9 months. JobBridge is available to employers with a minimum of one full time employee and the employer acts as a host organisation to the intern.


Struggling to meet the costs of taking on a full time employee, maybe our Jobsplus scheme can narrow the gap…………….

In July 2013 a new employer incentive scheme was launched called Jobsplus. This scheme replaces the Revenue job assist and the PRSI exemption scheme.  JobsPlus is designed to encourage employers and businesses to focus their recruitment efforts on those who have been out of work for long periods. Grants of up to 10,000 euro are available payable over 2 years.
