A celebration event was held to mark almost 900 individuals helped back into employment by our work in Navan.

We can confirm that we’ve helped 860 people in Navan and surrounding areas into full-time and part-time employment through the JobPath service on behalf of Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP).

On April 12, business partners from Meath joined our staff as well as Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government and Fine Gael T.D. for Meath West, Damien English.

The event was hosted at our centre on Kennedy Road, Navan and coincided with the release of the figures showing our Navan team helping 780 people in the community secure full-time employment and 80 people into part-time work.

We’re contracted by the DEASP to deliver the JobPath service which aims to help the long-term unemployed back into work.  It supports service users with careers guidance, self-employment advice, CV support, as well as interview and I.T training. Our Navan office has so far partnered with more than 500 businesses in the area.
