DEASP will host a breakfast briefing for Employers to introduce a number of free and easy-to-access services. 

As part of the morning, we at WCLES will introduce our free employer services, such as free Job advertising and vacancy matching. We will demonstrate our user friendly services and we will explain how we can work with employers.

DEASP have a wide array of employer services including:

  1. Jobs Plus

A financial subsidy paid to an employer who recruits a candidate who is in receipt of a jobseeker payment.

  1. First Steps Internship

An internship programme that employers can access where they offer an internship of three months to those under the age of 25.  While on the internship, the intern retains their jobseeker payment and get an internship allowance from DEASP.

  1. Recruitment Service

A recruitment service that an employer can access at no cost to them.  DEASP will promote the job vacancy, collect CVs and filter applications for employers.

  1. European Employment Services (EURES)

For those hard to fill vacancies an employer can access the Department’s EURES service at no cost to them.  This allows a business to recruit from the other countries in the European Economic Area.  Through the EURES service an eligible applicant may be able to get assistance to allow them to relocate to Ireland to take up an employment opportunity

Tea/Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
