Employment Incentives Seminar

We recently held very informative discussions with Minster for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton and Pat Deering TD, about supports for the SME sector and incentives for employment.

It was quickly evident to us that there is an information gap among employers around the whole area of employment initiatives.

To address that deficit we have teamed up with the Department of Social Protection to provide you with a detailed information seminar on employer supports and incentives which are available free of charge and which may help you recruit the staff you need.

These include financial supports such as the new JobsPlus Scheme and employment initiatives such as JobBridge – the National Internship Scheme.

We are delighted to invite you to this free seminar, presented by the Department of Social Protections Mid-Leinster employer liaison team.

Stephen Fitzgerald, Activation Manager, will be speaking about the Department’s Innovative Financial Supports coupled with a Professional Free Recruitment Service, that gives you access to a real talent pool of potential employees, which delivers real savings to you.

This seminar will be of interest to all business sectors and we urge everyone to try to attend or send an appropriate representative from your business, you do not want to miss out on this fantastic opportunity to avail of much needed labour support, grant aided.

This is an invaluable opportunity to gain firsthand information on what employment grants (up to €10,000), supports and other information that could help you keep your costs down while allowing your business to grow.
