Community Employment Scheme (CE Scheme) and Jobs Initiatives (JI)

15 Local Development Companies deliver Community Employment (CE) schemes and 12 companies deliver Jobs Initiative (JI) schemes on behalf of the Department of Social Protection.

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

The Job Initiative Scheme is a programme in Ireland providing full-time employment for people 35 years of age or over who have been unemployed for 5 years or more.
