Comments from our Clients
The Employability Service really helped me at a crucial part of my life. I thought that I would never find work due to my illness but Erin convinced me to interview for my current company through the Jobsbridge scheme. I accepted the position and within 3 months I was on the payroll and made permanent.

I was really impressed with the agency. I was out of work for over a year and a week after joining the agency, I got my first interview and got the job! I found the service very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend the agency.

Thanks to excellent skills and expertise of the Employability Service staff, I was able to achieve employment. I would recommend this service especially the Bandon staff, Erin and Darren who went beyond their duty in helping me. Thanks
I was very happy with the service. I got a lot of work experience, in which I found working with figures suited me. Due to my disability, sitting at a desk and work handed to me, suited best. I got work experience in an accountants office in September 2011 and in October 2011 I was taken on for 21 hrs a week and I am still there since.

"Work Start, now EmployAbility Service West Cork, was one of the very first organisations I sought out and have continued to work with since arriving in West Cork with my family some years ago.
"In my opinion, employment and occupation are very often of crucial importance when it comes to mental health. I have found the inputs from EmployAbility Service West Cork fantastic! They provide vital support for individuals who are struggling to get back on their feet and who are seeking access to the jobs market. The work they do is tremendous"

I am happy to support EmployAbility Service West Cork as I have first hand knowledge of the difference the service has made to people who face challenges at certain times in their lives and how they have been guided back into useful and fulfilling employment. I have observed from the employers' point of view how the employer has received the same support and guidance and how this service has proved to be a win win situation for everybody involved.
"I was made redundant about 2 years ago and it really hit me hard. I was new to the area and was not sure how to proceed with applying for jobs. I saw a flyer for EmployAbility Service West Cork and decided to get in touch. I have found them to be excellent, they gave me a lot of help. On a practical level, they sent me information about upcoming jobs and helped with my CV, also sent in applications on my behalf, so all I had to do was just say that yes, I am interested. I also got help with interview preparation and they gave me feedback afterwards which was a great help for later interviews. With their help and encouragement, I am now back in full time employment. I can fully recommend their personable, supportive and professional services to anyone. Thank you EmployAbility Service West Cork staff! Your help meant that I got my life back on track!"
