Further information on SECAD can be viewed on www.secad.ie.
In early 2022 the Department of Social Protection opened a tender process for the delivery of a ‘Local Area Employment Service’ (LAES) with Cork County named as one of the regions for the delivery of this service. SECAD is a member of the team of local development companies that successfully tendered for this contract led by Cork City Partnership. The primary purpose of the LAES is to provide employment focused supports and guidance to those that are long term unemployed (and other people) referred to the LAES by the DSP.
Each of the local development companies that are part of the Cork LAES has their own defined geographic area within which they will be delivering these services. SECAD will provide supports for the communities in East Cork (including the catchments of Youghal, Midleton, Cobh, Carrigtwohill-Little Island), in West Cork (including the catchments of Carrigaline, Kinsale, Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Bantry and the West Cork Islands and West Cork Peninsulas). SECAD is particularly interested in candidates who are currently based in or will be based in the West Cork area.
SECAD is developing a team of SECAD LAES Case Officers that will provide a range of supports to those referred from the DSP to the LAES in our catchment, including CV preparation, interview skills, career development, technology for work skills, social welfare supports and access to other public services that could assist the persons return to employment and activation.
These LAES services will be developed in parallel with existing valuable and experienced services such as those developed as part of Local Development ‘SICAP’ employment supports. From a value added and person-centred perspective, it will be essential that these supports are offered and delivered in a logical, collaborative and connected manner for each client.
