“We started off in 2008 and it has gone from strength to strength in our organisation. Last year in 2014, we had approximately 85 placements. It was an absolute fantastic success.”
– Ann Corr, employment facilitator, SOS Kilkenny Ltd.
Job Shadow Day, supported by Irishjobs.ie, is a fun and rewarding day of awareness for disability services.
Many services across Ireland take part every year.
Simply register your interest in getting involved and we will help you take the next steps.
Job Shadow Day sees hundreds of people with disabilities ‘shadow’ workers across Ireland for one day as they go about their normal working routine.
“Employers were very positive and very excited to get involved. Because of the support we got from the IASE, we were very confident in selling this idea to them.”
– Ber Rowan, employment facilitator, Kare Kildare.
The day supports clients to learn more about their career interests and the skills needed to succeed at works while also promoting equal employment opportunities to Irish businesses.
