Work Experience Scheme for Young People at the STG Construction Site

We are collaborating with Purcell, the main contractor on St. Teresa’s Gardens construction site, and INTREO, to launch a work experience scheme for young people aged between 18 and 25, from the local area, who are interested in construction trades. The young person would need to be on a social welfare payment, which is topped up significantly while attending the scheme, which will run for between 3 and 6 months. The young person will work 24 hours per week, and gain valuable experience on-site, in a trade or trades they are interested in. There are further supports available for the employer to offer participants full-time work after the scheme ends, as well as ample opportunities in construction coming up locally with the development of John Player Wills/Bailey Gibson site even after work finishes on the St. Teresa’s Gardens site. Contact Rea on 087 3856 372, or, for further details.  Closing date is flexible, however we are hoping to get all placements filled before beginning of October 2020.
