Seetec’s JobPath Service Secures Work for 25,000 People

We’ve helped over 25,000 people into employment through the JobPath service on behalf of the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP).

We deliver the JobPath programme in more than 50 locations across the northern part of the country, including Dublin, where it helps the long-term unemployed back into work. The programme supports clients with career and self-employment guidance, CV assistance, interview advice and IT training. We’ve also partnered with about 10,000 employers to maximise participants’ employment opportunities. 

We began delivering JobPath in July 2015, and since then we’ve helped more than 21,700 people into full-time positions and 3,400 into part-time roles across Ireland. We’re also on track to support a further 4,000 people into work by the end of 2019.

Alison Bunney, Managing Director Ireland said: “It is testament to the commitment of our teams that we have helped secure employment for 25,000 people across Ireland, not just in larger cities but also in our rural communities.

“Our centres have worked hard to become a valuable part of the communities in which they operate and in doing so have partnered with about 10,000 employers throughout Ireland.

“It’s very satisfying to be able to make a positive impact on our clients’ lives in helping them find employment and economic stability, and also to provide an important service to businesses in helping them prosper.”

According to the latest figures published by the Department of Employment Affairs & Social Protection, over 75% of our clients said Seetec helped them improve their prospects of getting a job, 80% said they were satisfied with the service last year, and over 90% of clients said they felt our staff tried their best for them.

Aside from the JobPath programme, we also offer bespoke recruitment and training services geared towards employers who are looking to expand their workforce.

Thelma Garvey, HR Manager at Pulse Logistics, said: “Seetec have helped us by introducing candidates to the type of work we have available and have found a number of candidates for us over the past few years. We have a number of employees that were sourced from Seetec still employed and fulfilling the roles.”

Thelma added: “I feel that participants who go through the service are more aware of the different opportunities / positions that are available to them. They seem to understand that they need to increase their skill set in order to be more employable in today’s changing workplace. Seetec understands our recruitment requirements and are always available to assist us.”

Patrick Stenson, Warehouse Manager at Lantec said Seetec makes it easier for him to find the right candidates for the roles available: “I only took over the management role last year. Seetec were great, the staff that I have recruited are fantastic and are sticking with me, and it’s down to Seetec.”

Our clients work across warehouse roles, engineering roles, and most of the staff who work on Lantec’s call desk are from Seetec.

Speaking in reference to clients working in Lantec’s warehouse, Patrick said: “It’s a stepping stone for guys coming in. They may have been out of work for a couple of years, but they come in here then they have a foot in the door and they can move on.”
