The role of your Employment Support Specialist

’We provide you with an Employment Support Specialist (ESS) who can support you through each stage of the support process.

Following registration with EmployAbility Wicklow, each JobSeeker is assigned an ESS, who through a series of one to one meetings will assist and support the JobSeeker with career planning, job searching, CV preparation and interview preparation.

The ESS makes contact with employers in order to find the right job fit for each JobSeeker. We don’t solely rely on job advertisements to look for work; we network with employers to look for potential vacancies before they happen.

The ESS provides information and advice on grants / supports available to JobSeekers i.e. Wage Subsidy Scheme and Jobs Plus. On-the-job support and coaching are available when the JobSeeker, ESS or Employer feel it is necessary. All of our staff are fully Garda Vetted.

EmployAbility Wicklow is a person-centred service.
