Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Community Employment


Community Employment (CE) is an employment programme which helps long-term unemployed (at least six months) people to re-enter the workforce by breaking their experience of unemployment through a return to work routine.

The CE programme aims to enhance and develop both technical and personal skills which can then be used in the workplace. The CE programme is generally sponsored by groups wishing to benefit the local community, namely voluntary organisations and public bodies involved in not-for-profit activities.


To participate in the DSP (Department of Social Protection) CE programme, you must:

  • Register at your local Employment Services Office and
  • Meet certain Eligibility Criteria

The Department provides financial support in the form of Allowances and Funding to assist with the programme, for example participant wages, supervisor grants, materials grants, and specific skills training grants.

You should contact your local Employment Services Office for further information about Community Employment.
