Employment Support Pack

South West Inner City Local Employment Service have put together a free Employment Support Pack with some valuable tips for searching for Employment such as CV / Interview Tips and other relevant and helpful information.

This pack can be emailed or posted if you get in touch with us and give your details to Orla on 01 5111260 we will arrange email or post.

We hope at some time in the near future to be able to arrange a collection service and will let people know when this is available


Now on all customers can;

Apply for the Covid-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment;
Apply for Enhanced Illness Benefit for Covid-19 including for self-isolation cases;
Apply for a jobseeker’s payment; and
Request to close their Covid-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment.

All that is required is for the individual to have an email address, a bank account and a PPSN.

Simply go onto the Covid-19 Services section of the website and apply for the payment

This is by far the quickest way for payments to be processed rather than paper copies
