Job Role

Seetec Employment and Skills Ireland is contracted by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection to operate the JobPath service on behalf of the Irish Government. JobPath is an employment activation service provided to people who have been on the live register for more than 12 months and to enable them to secure and sustain full-time paid employment or self-employment. Working with over 10,000 Irish businesses and employers, Seetec has helped over 30,000 people into work in Ireland to date. The company directly employs over 230 people in Ireland.

Our 2,400 colleagues – across 200 offices in the UK and Ireland – are dedicated to improving the lives of thousands of people every year by identifying and delivering the support they need to be more skilled, productive and prosperous. Our foundation is the strength of our people and their expertise, insight and determination to change the lives of those they support.
