“We urge businesses across Ireland to join with us this Job Shadow Day and experience the positives first hand.”
– Orla Moran, general manager, Irishjobs.ie
“I would personally encourage every person who has a business to get involved with Job Shadow. Not only does it have rewards for the participant but, on a personal level, it has fantastic rewards for us too.”
– Job Shadow Day employer Mary Keely, Roscommon.
Job Shadow Day has captured the imagination of employers across Ireland.
Last year, 500 employers took part and that number is growing.
Businesses of all sizes, across all sectors, both private and public, are responding positively to Job Shadow Day because of the hugely positive impact it has on their workplace.
An incredible 3,800 Job Shadow placements have taken place since the project was launched in 2008.
The project has been such a success story that 12 European countries are following Ireland’s lead and launching their own national Job Shadow Day in 2015.
