YESS is a new work experience placement programme which is specifically targeted at young jobseekers aged 18-24 years of age who are long-term unemployed or who face barriers to employment. It will aim to provide jobseekers with the opportunity to learn basic work and social skills in a supportive environment while on a work placement. The scheme will provide a supportive structure for Participants, including case officer support for both Placement Hosts and jobseekers.

While participation on the YESS will be wholly voluntary for both parties involved, there will be certain qualifying and eligibility conditions that both placement hosts and jobseekers will have to satisfy. For further information on the scheme qualifying criteria, please click here.

All YESS placements will be advertised on the Jobs Ireland website, www.jobsireland.ie and interested jobseekers will have to log onto same to view scheme vacancies.
