Job Clubs provide training to assist participants who are ready for work, to develop skills which they can use to find a job.
Anyone who is ready to work and is between 16 and 64 years of age can join a Job Club. Participants do not have to be on a social welfare payment but if they are, it will not be affected by becoming a member of a Job Club.
Training areas offered by Job Clubs range from Health and Safety, to Interview Techniques and generally last up to 4 weeks (see Course Content and Duration).
Job Club participants retain their social welfare allowances during the training modules and receive €20 per week to help in dealing with additional costs.
