Beaumont Residential Care
"We completed a major expansion in early 2011 and one of the biggest challenges we faced was in growing staff numbers in a very short time.  A work colleague mentioned Employability Cork and we subsequently recruited two of their clients - who were a revelation!   Shortly afterwards we recruited a further four and, accordingly, have now successfully filled six vacancies in a variety of roles.    We will certainly be using Employability Cork again should further vacancies arise."

Textile Recycling Ltd.
“We currently have four employees hired under the Wage Subsidy Scheme, doing a wide range of activities. I feel the FAS head office support structure service is excellent and if there any questions or issues they are solved immediately. The support payments system works perfectly and this as you can imagine helps our company’s bottom line. I have no hesitation in recommending this scheme to any employer and when I have a vacancy the first people I ring are the EmployAbility Services to see if there are any people on their books that have the skills set we need.”

Supervalu Millstreet
We in Supervalu Millstreet have been dealing with EmployAbility Service Cork since the summer of 2008. We found EmployAbility Cork staff to be most helpful, calling to the store on a regular basis to liaise with the employees and manage any problems we ever had, they were always at the end of the phone, and they gave us a prompt response. We would recommend the EmployAbility Service to any other employers.

Dervish Bookstore
The Wage Subsidy Scheme has given our business the chance to expand during a period of relative economic stagnation. It would have been impossible to move forward with such successful results had it not been for the tireless work of the EmployAbility team who have provided such open support every step of the way.
