Job Bridge is the National Internship Scheme that provides work experience placements for interns for a 6 – 9 month period. The aim of the scheme is to assist in breaking the cycle where jobseekers are unable to get a job without experience, training or as unemployed workers wishing to learn new skills. The scheme is a great opportunity for employers and offers significant benefits in a number of areas:
- Job Bridge creates additional human resources for the company during the 6-9 month placement period.
- Provides access to potentially high quality personnel at no financial cost and at little risk to the organisation.
- Gives a participating company time to assess a suitable individuals potential value to a company if being kept on in a full time capacity.
- Under the related Jobs Plus Scheme financial incentives of between €7,500 and €10,000 can be claimed when employing a full time individual who has been out of work for 12 months or more.
Avid Partners have assisted many clients through the Jobs Bridge and Jobs Plus Schemes. We have helped in drafting the position, getting the intern position listed, advertised the intern role, selection of the right intern for the client organisation and in some instances interviewing the intern for a full time position within the organisation upon completion of the placement.
