Employers play a pivotal role in helping to deliver Worklink services by providing work experience and development opportunities for jobseekers on the live register to help them to gain the skills, experience and confidence to transition back into full employment. Work placements and Internships can be drawn from the many national work activation schemes that are provided by public bodies and agencies such as JobBridge, FÁS Work Placement Programme and others.
Worklink works with employers to provide help and advice on the various schemes and incentives that are available, and we have developed a suite of documents that will help employers including a guide to JobBridge and a 'Best Practice Guide to Internships'.
As the official volunteering of the CIPD, we will seek to work with employers to encourage positive hiring policy, and will be running both networking and information events for employers with the aim of highlighting the incentives that are available for those who want to hire from the Live Register. See our Facebook page for a list of upcoming events.
