SE for Job Seekers

Supported employment is a system used to support people with disabilities to find and secure a job of their own choosing in the open labour market.

The IASE believes everyone has the right to work.

However, people with disabilities sometimes face a lot more barriers when it comes to finding, securing and keeping a job compared to other working age adults.

In Ireland, a person with a disability is just half as likely to be employed as the rest of the working age population.

That’s where supported employment can help.

Supported employment can put you in touch with someone who is specially trained (sometimes called a job coach or an employment facilitator) in this area and who can help to put the right types of supports in place to support you towards finding, securing and keeping a job.
