Short summary and what we do: Employment Focus, is a free registered recruitment agency within Focus Ireland and based at PETE in Dublin.

Due to our funding requirements, we must prioritise all referrals, where the job seeker meets the following criteria: 1. Job seeker has a history of residential care 2. Age 18-25 years 3. Job ready (motivated with an up to date CV-see attached referral form) and interested in engaging with a recruitment support worker to seek paid employment
