Job Bridge


JobBridge, The National Internship Scheme, became operational on 1st July 2011. The scheme provided internship opportunities of 6 or 9 months in duration, for unemployed individuals with organisations across the private, public and community & voluntary sectors.

The aim of the JobBridge Scheme was to provide those seeking employment with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, maintain close links with the labour market and to enhance their skills and competencies through a quality internship opportunity.

JobBridge scheme ends

On October 19th 2016, Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar announced that the current JobBridge internship programme was to close to new participants. 

From 21st October 2016, JobBridge closed to new applications. Existing nine-month JobBridge placement holders will continue until the conclusion. People who have already applied for positions will have until 25 November 2016 to start the internship. A review of JobBridge has recommended that it should be replaced by a new work experience programme.

Details on the new scheme are to follow...

  Hint: Department of Education and Skills
Management training is a constant over the past twenty years This is necessary both for good practice and for keeping abreast of developments in the management skills area and in the area of legislation.

Most recently I attended a four days course on Leadership in Catholic Schools.
