JobBridge – the National Internship Scheme

This Scheme allows you to offer work experience for either 6 or 9 months in your business to a person who has been unemployed for at least three months in the last 6 months.   The person must be getting a social welfare payment (i.e. a Jobseeker’s payment, One-Parent Family Payment or Disability Allowance) or signing for unemployment credits.

There is no cost to you in providing this internship as the Department would continue to pay the person their social welfare payment plus a weekly top-up of €50 while on the internship. Further details are available on
