Community Employment at Dún na Sí

There are many community employment (CE) opportunities available in Dún na Sí and the Moate area! Dún na Sí owes a lot of its CE workers for helping to maintain the Parks and centre!

The benefits of community employment include:

  • You get to work in your local community
  • Class “A” weekly PRSI contributions
  • CE is temporary, part time employment, just 19.5hrs per week
  • It is possible to pursue third level or vocational degrees
  • Training is provided: Manual handling, health and safety, first aid etc
  • It is a stepping stone to employment
  • Participants can take up other part time work during the CE placement
