Communication and team skills are probably the most important aspect overlooked.

In energy management, it is not I that saves the energy, but often it is folks on the ground using the equipment.

It is the energy managers job to educate by communication, the importance of doing the right things, savings then come as a result.

Job Bridge

JobBridge, The National Internship Scheme, became operational on 1st July 2011. The scheme provided internship opportunities of 6 or 9 months in duration, for unemployed individuals with organisations across the private, public and community & voluntary sectors.

The aim of the JobBridge Scheme was to provide those seeking employment with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, maintain close links with the labour market and to enhance their skills and competencies through a quality internship opportunity.

JobBridge scheme ends

On October 19th 2016, Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar announced that the current JobBridge internship programme was to close to new participants. 

From 21st October 2016, JobBridge closed to new applications. Existing nine-month JobBridge placement holders will continue until the conclusion. People who have already applied for positions will have until 25 November 2016 to start the internship. A review of JobBridge has recommended that it should be replaced by a new work experience programme.

Details on the new scheme are to follow...
