Back To Work Connect is a profit for impact enterprise.
Our mission is to demonstrate the value of midlife workers (Returners and career changers) to the jobs market and connect them with the supports, skills and opportunities they need to re-enter the workforce in a meaningful and financially viable manner.
Our Social Impact
Under our social impact goals we are developing a number of programmes to address the skills shortages in the labour market and the disconnect between midlife candidates looking to resume employment following a career break and the actual opportunities available to them.
Advance the demonstrated value of midlife workers to Ireland’s economy and society and support midlife workers to gain sustainable and meaningful employment opportunities.
