Looking for work

Turas Nua is delivering the National Employment Service across Ireland. With help of a dedicated Caseworker, each of our clients gets the support and guidance they need to move into suitable, sustainable employment.

We have offices in urban centres like Cork, Limerick, and Waterford, and also in local, rural communnities - from Kilrush to Thomastown - providing all of our clients with access to tailored supports.

We’ll listen to you, develop a plan together, and strive to understand your needs. Our team of specialist Caseworkers, Traners and Employer Services Consultants are here to offer the right information, advice and guidance to help you through your journey. We also offer additional support to make sure you’re ready for work and have the skills you need to succeed.

When you're on our programme, we'll initially arrange for you to come to a welcome session at an office near you, either as part of a group or one-to-one with a dedicated, assigned Caseworker. There, we’ll give you an overview of what you can expect from the programme and the range of supports available to you.


It's important to us to understand what you’re looking for - your individual circumstances, goals, and aspirations. This will help us to map out your new journey and get you exactly the right support.

Your Caseworker will work with you to produce an progression plan, outlining what you can yourself to give you the best chances of securing a job, and providing their specialist guidance along the way to ensure you are best equipped to succeed. We’ll agree and set targets to help keep you on track, giving you milestones to aim for along the way.

We’ll be with you every step of the way to help you overcome any challenges, giving you the tools and techniques you need to find your next role. We work with lots of other specialist organisations too, so you can be sure that, whatever your needs, we’ll make sure you get the best support for your circumstances.

And the support doesn’t stop when you find a job. Our In-Work Support process ensures you continue to have access to Turas Nua to help iron out any problems you might be having, give you advice and information if you need it, or just be there to listen.
