Tús - A Community Work Placement Scheme

Tús is a yearlong programme for people who are unemployed which helps participants to build skills and experience to help with long-term employability, while also receiving a top-up to social welfare payments.

Participants in the programme are placed in a one-year part-time job with a community, non-profit & charitable organisation in the Dublin 15 area. TÚS can help you start a career, change career or simple break the gaps of unemployment on your CV. It also helps understaffed, underfunded community organisations deliver services in the Dublin 15 area.

Part-time jobs are 19.5 hours per week in an area of your choice such as:

  • Administration
  • Caring
  • Childcare
  • Security
  • Maintenance

Participants will build new skills, experience for CVs, make new contacts and have up to date employer references.
