Deering encourages Carlow businesses to join Government
internship scheme

 

Fine Gael TD for Carlow/Kilkenny, Pat Deering, has
today (Wednesday) welcomed the launch of JobBridge, the new National Internship
Scheme, which provides internship placements to give people without a job
valuable work experience.

 

Calling on Carlow businesses to join the scheme, Deering
said: ‘This is an excellent opportunity for Carlow businesses to come on board
and support the unemployed in this county. There has been a strong response
from large companies across the country and I am calling on Carlow businesses
to look at their organisations to see where they can offer
people the opportunity to gain work experience through a quality internship’.

 

“The Government is committed to getting
Ireland
back to work and JobBridge is an important part of that effort. I believe that
we need a collective effort by all sectors of society to tackle the challenges
facing the country.

 

“So far, companies such as Dawn Foods,
KPMG, Arthur Cox, Mercury Engineering, Hertz and many more have signed up to
the scheme and I hope to see this list expand to include Carlow-based
companies.”
