What are your interests?

Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Youth Employment Support Scheme

A new Youth Employment Support Scheme (YESS), was announced in Budget 2018. The First Steps programme is being closed to facilitate the introduction of a new Youth Employment Support Scheme (YESS). 

The voluntary scheme is aimed at young jobseekers who are long-term unemployed or who face significant barriers to gaining employment. YESS aims to provide an opportunity to learn basic work and social skills in a supportive environment while on a work placement. 

The scheme will begin in the second quarter of 2018. It will be open to jobseekers and other eligible persons aged between 18 and 24 who have

a) been out of work and in receipt of a qualifying payment for at least 12 months or,

b) if unemployed for less than 12 months, are considered by a caseworker to face a significant barrier to work.

Candidates must also be in receipt of certain eligible social welfare payments.
