Job Seeker benefits

Irish Medtech Skillnet primarily focusses on supporting those in employment with the medtech and engineering sector. Whilst our key focus is on the needs of member companies, we also offer a small number of fully-funded programmes for jobseekers, subject to eligibility criteria and places being available on the programme.

We offer a limited number of FREE places to those who are unemployed and seeking to increase their employment prospects through up-skilling in relevant training. If you are currently unemployed, you may be eligible to attend training with Irish Medtech Skillnet with no charge or impact on your social welfare payments or benefits (for those who are in receipt of such payments).

Eligibility: See unemployed eligibility page on Skillnet Ireland website
