We partner with a number of organisations that support employment within the local community. We also partner with organisations to support social enterprises.
We are proud supporters of Career L.E.A.P., a work readiness training programme for young people aged 18-24 from marginalised backgrounds. It has been uniquely developed through a collaborative partnership with Business in the Community, other corporates in the IFSC, Community Groups and Trinity College Dublin. Through this collaboration, Career L.E.A.P. aims to help to reduce youth unemployment in the local communities in Dublin's North East Inner City. We are supporting the initiative by providing work experience, training to the people participating in the programme and where possible employment within ALG.
