Seetec Marks Third Anniversary in Galway
Staff from the Seetec Galway centre gathered recently to celebrate the third anniversary of the centre’s opening.
Members of the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) joined the Seetec team to celebrate three years in the city and the success of the JobPath service in Co. Galway.
Seetec is contracted by the DEASP to deliver the JobPath service which aims to help the long-term unemployed and those furthest from the labour market back into work. While delivered from the city it provides an outreach service in Tuam, Loughrea, Clifden and Carraroe and Ballinasloe.
Since the centre’s opening in September 2015, Seetec Galway has helped more than 1,400 people find full-time employment. It has successfully partnered with an estimated 600 employers in Galway City and county and currently has over 1,400 participants active with the service. A further 424 are working including self-employed and are eligible for In-employment service.
Mouna Prenty, CEO of Seetec Ireland, said: “The centre opened three years ago to deliver JobPath with the sole aim of empowering individuals to move into sustainable employment and I’m delighted to say we are achieving that.
“Our Galway team has helped more than 1,400 people in Co. Galway into employment and we continue to grow stronger ties within the community. Our partnerships with Galway employers have been vital to this success and we look forward to these relationships going from strength-to-strength.
“We thank everyone who was able to join us. It goes to show how dedicated people are to support those who are unemployed.”
Imelda Noone, Operations Director at Seetec, added: “Our purposely designed centre is where participants start their JobPath journey and has an education training suite where we carry out workshops as well as small training rooms to conduct interviews.
“Additionally, we have a dedicated job search area where participants have access to our I.T facilities to aid their search for job vacancies, application for jobs and creating their CV.
“The Seetec Galway team work hard within the community and we’re delighted with the support we’ve received and the success we’ve had in our first three years – long may it continue”
