Kieran Kennedy, Managing Director of O’Neills, said: “We are delighted to offer this opportunity through the Bridge to Employment training programme. We know from experience that people need to be given the chance to demonstrate what they are capable of. At O’Neills we have a very strong track record in bringing through young people to valued and secure jobs. We provide excellent in-house training and support for our employees. In recent years O’Neills has grown, developed and transformed itself and this is in large part due to our superb workforce. We would encourage young people that have experienced unemployment to grasp this opportunity for training and preparation to bridge that gap into employment with us at O’Neills. The programme is for one week that could change someone’s life.”
