JobBridge is a new National Internship Scheme that will provide work experience placements for interns for a 6 or 9 month period.
The scheme was launched today by the Taoiseach Enda Kenny and the Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton at Facebook's Dublin offices
The scheme will provide for up to 5,000 work experience placements in the private, public and voluntary sectors. This will be a time-limited scheme. Interns will receive an allowance of €50 per week on top of their existing social welfare entitlement. This will be payable for the period of the internship.
