Our wide range of skills and employability programmes delivered globally are tailored to the needs of local labour markets and demographic profiles of the areas we serve, so that people can access the exact guidance they need to return to or enter employment, training or education whether they live in a remote Gaeltacht village or in the heart of Dublin. Our dedicated team help people work towards securing realistic and achievable jobs in growing sectors such as digital, construction and low carbon with good pay, progression opportunities and a positive career trajectory.
Starting your career can be a difficult time. We help young people to enter the job market by gaining work experience, identifying and developing the soft and sector-specific skills employers need, and securing their first role. Our group workshops and one-to-one mentoring guide young people through the recruitment process, embedding key job search, application and interview skills. Twin experts continue supporting young people during the first six months of their new job to make sure they feel comfortable and confident and set them up for promotions, pay rises and increases in responsibility.
