“Working brings income, brings structure to the day, brings physical, mental, emotional, and indeed for some spiritual, satisfaction. Working and not working positively and negatively impact family life, friends, neighbours, and community acquaintances.  Working contributes financially to the overall economy.”

Founder Vision

Paul Mooney / Co-Founder & Chief Executive

In Jobcare we believe that working matters.

Since 1994, Jobcare has been working in Dublin’s inner city, assisting those struggling with the effects of long-term unemployment to get over their barriers to employment.

I say that these services are effective, that each course or programme has been tailored to ensure it is relevant to our clients’ needs. This is true and important, but equally important is how the services are delivered and the heart behind them.

Testimonials

Jobcare is a unique place. People root for each other. Regardless of age, background or education, everybody is afforded the same respect, opportunities and assistance. I will always be grateful for the role Jobcare played in helping me secure my dream job, a full-time staff writer in online media. I’m a better person for having been exposed to the Jobcare ethos and immersed in the Jobcare environment.

Jobcare was the stepping stone to my future. Jobcare cares, as the name says, cares about helping people getting back into the workforce or into training. In particular when times are hard and you are feeling low, it is important to know that there are people out there that care and can help you.
