Community Employment is a programme of work and training for people who have been out of work for a while. Jobcare’s CE programme gives participants the skills needed to get back into the workforce and break the cycle of being unemployed.

Community Employment is 20 hours per week and is sponsored by DSP / FAS. Participants are given on-the-job training, opportunities for certified vocational training, and coaching and mentoring towards their chosen career goal.

To be eligible for CE you need to be either

– Over age 25 and in receipt of social welfare payment for more than twelve months
– Or over age 18 with disability-related welfare payment.
