We've helped over 1200 people in County Mayo into full-time and part-time employment through the JobPath service on behalf of the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP).

The JobPath service is delivered in Castlebar, Ballina, Claremorris, Belmullet and Achill where it helps the long-term unemployed back into work. It supports clients with career guidance, self-employment advice, CV support, and interview and IT training.

Over 50 guests joined the our team in Mayo to celebrate 4 years of the service last week, including clients, local employers, local Councillors, TD’s, Senators, training providers and members of the Intreo team in Mayo.

The community event was hosted in our centre at N5 Business Park, Moneen Road, Castlebar and coincided with the release of figures showing our Mayo team has helped 1100 people secure full-time employment and 100 into part-time work.

Seetec began delivering JobPath in July 2015, and since then we've already helped more than 24,800 people into full-time positions and 3,600 into part-time roles across Ireland.

According to the latest figures published by the Department of Employment Affairs & Social Protection, over 80% of clients said they were satisfied with the JobPath service last year and over 90% said they felt our staff tried their best for them.

Paul McCole Seetec Business Manager Co.Mayo said: “It is fantastic to see Seetec has helped so many people in County Mayo into employment over its first four years here. It is very satisfying to be able to make a positive impact on our clients’ lives in helping them find sustained employment, while also providing an important service to businesses in Mayo and helping them to grow.

“Our teams have worked really hard to become a valued part of the communities we serve, and I’m very proud of the positive impact we have made in County Mayo.”

Councillor Michael Loftus from Mayo County Council commented: “I was very impressed with the morning and what I learned about Seetec especially what the JobPath programme has done for the people of Mayo.  I was delighted to meet staff and participants at the Seetec office in Castlebar and see the difference the support given is making by helping people find sustainable employment.”
