Nenagh Job Club (outreach to Roscrea and Thurles)

What we do

You may be entering the world of employment for the first time; returning to work after raising your family or looking after a loved one.  You may have many years of work experience under your belt; have been made redundant or lost your job during the economic downturn; you may want to change career direction, have just graduated or you may simply be looking for a better job – all are reasons that prompt people to come in to talk to us in Nenagh Job Club.

Finding the right job can be a challenging, exciting or even a daunting process. Finding a job is a job in itself, and needs to be approached with a sense of challenge and responsibility. There are many ways jobs are advertised, and knowing where to look and what to expect is important. So if you are looking for a job, Nenagh Job Club will assist you by giving you a clear understanding of the process.

Nenagh Job Club has a range of resources available to you that are designed to assist you in making sound, informed decisions about your career.
