Closure of JobBridge Scheme

In October, the Minister for Social Protection announced that they would close the JobBridge Scheme to all new applicants. They confirmed that “JobBridge has served its purpose and should be replaced with a new programme with a stronger focus on skills, paying at least the minimum wage, and focusing on those unemployed for at least six months”

The new programme should pay all participants the Minimum Wage, require employers to contribute to the participants pay, involve a greater emphasis on skills development through workplace learning, be shorter than JobBridge, 6 months rather than 9 months and most importantly it will Only be available to employers that are in the position to offer employment at the end of the placement.
