What is TÚS?
TÚS is an opportunity for unemployed jobseekers to work with community, non-profit & charitable organisations in the Dublin 15 area. How we do it, is by offering part-time jobs to individuals in one of these organisations for one year. TÚS can help you start a career, change career or simple break the gaps of unemployment on your CV. It can also help under staffed, underfunded community organisations deliver services in the Dublin 15 area.
A commitment of 19.5 hours per week is required. Candidates can work in areas such as Administration, Caring, Childcare, Security, Maintenance & much more.
It is easier to get a job when you are in a job and TÚS can help you update references & gain new skills and contacts. A top-up will be added to your social welfare payment & this will be paid directly into your bank account on a weekly basis.
How to take part:
Are you unemployed & on a Jobseekers allowance payment for at least twelve months? If so, there are two ways to take part.
- Random selected from the live register from the local DSP office.
- Self-referral through your LES mediator or your DSP case officer.
