South West Inner City Local Employment Centre was established in 2007 as one of four autonomous community owned Local Employment Services in the Inner City Employment Service (ICES Network).
An Integral part of ICES Inner City Employment Service responding to the needs of local unemployed Jobseekers and Employers.
South West Inner City Local Employment Centre (SWIC LEC) operates within the Dublin 8 inner city area. This jobs-focused professional
mediation and guidance service is intended primarily to assist unemployed residents to progress to employment, training or education.
The service was set up to deliver a Local Employment Service to the residents of Dublin 8. Then centre is owned and managed by the Board of Directors made up of representatives of the community, employers and services in the local area. The Board of Directors are contracted and receive funding through a service level agreement with Department of Social Protection to deliver the required targets as set out in the SLA. This SLA, which in fact sets out our strategic targets for the year is not a document that we influence as it is devised between the Department of Social Protection and The inner city employment service.
