Try gain experience in some area of construction if possible to see if it’s for you. If you’re interested in a 9-5 job this is not for you!

If you like meeting with new people each day and dealing with issues which they may have regarding the project this is a good job for you. If you like to take charge of situations then this is also a good role for you to take on.

First Steps


The First Steps program is part of the EU Youth Guarantee and will offer a young person aged 18 to 24, who has had little or no experience of working, the opportunity to learn basic work skills and social skills while on a placement in a real work situation.

The First Steps program is similar to the JobBridge Internship scheme in the following ways:

  • Appointment of a mentor
  • An Employer/Intern agreement outlining activities/skills obtained
  • Monitoring of the Internship's progress
  • Payment of a €52.50 top up each week to the participant jobseeker
  • 6 or 9 month duration

The first intake of interns is anticipated to take place in March 2015 with further intakes throughout the year. DSP staff select suitable candidates and refer them for interview.
