Skills to Work is a new Irish Government jobs campaign which brings together Government initiatives to support jobseekers access the training and work experience they need and to help and encourage businesses employ people currently on the Live Register.

The campaign aims to make it easier for jobseekers and employers to know what Government skills initiatives are available to them; Springboard, Momentum, Skillnets, and JobsPlus.

The Skills to Work online tool,, directs jobseekers to information on what education, re-skilling or work experience options are available to them in areas of new and emerging employment opportunities.

The tool also directs employers to information on incentives available to hire a new employee who is currently on the Live Register, offer a work placement or access skills training. Skills to Work provides information on additional opportunities and government supports available to help people get back to work and to help businesses grow.

Alongside the new online tool, the Skills to Work team will meet directly with jobseekers and employers, largely through attending job fairs and roadshows around the country.

Skills to Work is part of Pathways to Work, the Government's strategy to reduce unemployment.
