Employment and Youth Activation Charter

Print page

The Tánaiste, Joan Bruton launched The Employment and Youth Activation Charter on the 29th September 2014. Employers who sign this Charter commit that at least 50% of candidates considered for interview will be taken from the Live Register. They will also implement a selection of measures which seek to prime those who are out of work to take up jobs.

The Charter was proposed by the Labour Market Council, the body of industry and policy experts which was established by the Tánaiste in 2013 to help drive implementation of the Government's Pathways to Work strategy to tackle unemployment.

The Tánaiste launched the Charter with the Minister of State for Employment, Community and Social Support Kevin Humphreys; Mr Martin Murphy, Managing Director of Hewlett Packard Ireland and Chair of the Labour Market Council, and Mr Tony Keohane, Chairman of Tesco Ireland and Chair of the Employment Engagement Committee of the Labour Market Council which oversaw the development of the Charter.
