We’re here to help
Limerick Local Employment Service was established in 1995 as a result of the Task Force on Long Term Unemployment. It is managed by PAUL Partnership and works under contract from the Department of Social Protection.
The LES provides a free service to jobseekers in Limerick city catchment area, assisting the individual to plan a route back to employment. We provide a Job Mediation and Guidance service which is professional, impartial and client centred. We act as a gateway or access point to enable clients to avail of supports or services from other agencies as appropriate.
Employers can avail of free recruitment and placement service, together with information on various employment incentives and government programmes. Employers can avail of other supports such as interview facilities and assistance in developing job descriptions.
The Limerick LES has maintained the Qmark quality assurance award each year since 2006.
Our Mission Statement
To provide guidance and support to unemployed people that can help them find suitable employment or to develop skills by accessing training and educational opportunities.
We will work with statutory, voluntary and community agencies, to provide an integrated local service, which meets the needs of each client and which is impartial and client focused.
PAUL Partnership is an organisation made up of communities, state agencies, social partners, voluntary groups and elected representatives.
It works with local communities that have benefited least from economic and social development and aims to promote social inclusion and improve the quality of life of people living in these communities.

Jobseekers can use the Local Employment Service for information, advice and guidance.
