Community Employment

The Moy Valley Resources Community Employment (CE) scheme is designed to help people
who are long-term unemployed (or otherwise disadvantaged) to get back to work by
offering part-time and temporary placements in jobs based within local communities.

The aim of CE is to enhance the employability and mobility of disadvantaged and
unemployed persons by providing work experience and training opportunities for them
within their communities. In addition, it helps long-term unemployed people to re-enter the
active workforce by breaking their experience of unemployment through a return-to-work
routine.

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection supports sponsor groups such
as Moy Valley Resources in creating and developing schemes.  Moy Valley Resources are
also supported by our Local INTREO Office in Ballina, which provides us with potential
participants interested in joining our CE Scheme.

Moy Valley Resources provide various work experience opportunities both internally and
externally using sub-sponsor agreements. 

If you are more of an outdoor person there are caretaking and gardening positions. 
Alternatively, if as a potential participant, you would prefer to work indoors there are
opportunities to work in administration or as a support worker. 

And there is more: currently, Moy Valley Resources are supporting the following local
community groups

  • Ballina Chamber of Commerce and Tourist Office
  • Mayo North Tourism
  • Craoibhin
  • Suifinn Way, Ballycastle
  • Lacken Enterprise
  • Hope House, Foxford
  • Ballina Boxing Club
  • Mayo Volunteer Centre

 

But we are hopeful, that we will have some new sub-sponsors and roles coming online very
soon.  Please keep an eye on the Jobs Ireland website for all CE placements available in
Mayo.

Training opportunities are key to successful time spent on any CE scheme.  Here in Ballina,
we are very fortunate to have MSLETB, Ballina on our doorstep. Moy Valley Resources
collaborate with the Ballina Training Centre co-ordinators to ensure our participants are
getting their training requirements here in town.  In addition to the MSLETB website there is
another very useful resource called www.fetchcourses.ie This website provides a
comprehensive listing of all training available locally but also nationally and online.  Or there
are courses available to eligible participants to enrol on  SpringBoard+

The main impacts of Community Employment

1. It provides valuable occupational experience as a stepping-stone to employment for
people who are unemployed.

2. It encourages a return to education and training in a safe and non-judgmental way
for those who wish to enhance their employment opportunities.

3. Schemes such as CE also provide important, and in many cases essential, services to
their local communities.

If you are interested in further information relating to our Community Employment
Scheme, please contact our CE Supervisor Jacqueline Kinsella on 096-70905 or by
email jacqui.kinsella@moyvalley.ie
