Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Jobcare


Jobcare offers a range of services, courses and resources to help people develop their skills and improve their employment opportunities.

The Resource Room

The Resource Room is open to drop in clients Monday to Thursday from 10.00am to 12 noon. Access at other times is by appointment only. Jobclub members (clients who have completed a course in Jobcare) have privileged access to the Resource Room facilities from 10.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Thursday.

Jobseeker Course

The course runs Monday to Thursday mornings from 10.00am to 1.00pm. Formal classes last for two hours with a short coffee break. At the end of each class you are given job-related tasks to complete in the Resource Room where Jobcare’s trained staff will help you to put what you have learned into practice.

Jobnet

Jobnet runs 9.30–1.30 Friday mornings for seven weeks. The programme focuses on personal branding, networking, goal setting and job seeking in a digital age. In addition to the large group setting, participants work in focus groups of six, each facilitated by a senior business manager, HR professional or career coach. The facilitators help to energise and support the group. Participants are encouraged to view each Jobnet session as a day at work and to plan appropriately. Key messages in the programme are confidence-building, reinvention, up-skilling, network building, targeted job search, seeking out local opportunities.

Computer Skills

Jobcare offers two different FETAC accredited Computer Skills Courses.

Time for Families - Building Stronger Families

The primary focus of Time for Families is encouraging loving, committed relationships within families. This focus is based in our Christian faith which motivates our compassion and commitment to social action. We want to reach people coming from a chaotic family background – those that have real needs and who have often missed out. Our highly successful relationship course, “Building Stronger Families”, which Jobcare is the sole provider of in Ireland, has run effectively with community groups and with prisoners and their partners on the outside.

Career Coaching

Jobcare has a number of career coaches who kindly offer their time on a voluntary basis to help clients and staff who are seeking direction in their career paths. The service is available to participants in our programmes for jobseekers and to Jobcare staff.

External Training

Jobcare offers a range of workshops and training courses that can be delivered to youth and community groups, businesses and institutions. Learning takes place in groups where there is a close ratio of tutor to participant. Jobcare is happy to discuss how course material could be tailored to suit the particular needs of a group.
