Participants on Welcome to Work

Seetec's Galway and Castlebar centres are hosting Welcome to Work open days for individuals from new communities who are finding it difficult to get a job.

Welcome to Work is a 13 week programme that aims to increase employment opportunities for legally resident migrants who are struggling to find work in Castlebar and Galway in Ireland.  

Participants receive mentoring and support to help them move into work or further education.  They will improve their spoken English, gain confidence, make new friends, improve their computer skills, learn how to create a winning CV and prepare for interviews, as well as enjoy a cultural away day to learn about Irish culture and history.

The open days are:

  • 9.30am Friday 20th July 2018 - 3rd Floor, Hibernian House, Eyre Square, Galway
  • 10am Thursday 2nd August 2018 - Unit 12c, N5 Business Park, Moneen, Castlebar

Recent participants who have enjoyed the programme said:

"I participated with my husband who was struggling with English and seeking help with finding a job. But from lesson to lesson I realised that this programme helped me to settle well in Galway, to get to know people and improve my English and gave me confidence". Patrycja

"I found this programme very interesting and useful. This programme gave me an opportunity to meet new people and make me feel more confident with them. Also it gave me a lot of new ideas about searching for a job, how to create a CV and at the same time my vocabulary increased" Olga
