Local employment opportunities
The Grangegorman Employment Charter, initiated by the Grangegorman Labour & Learning Forum (GLLF) and the Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA) in 2012, ensures that local communities in Grangegorman and surrounding areas benefit from employment opportunities arising from the Grangegorman Development. The Charter requires contractors working on the Grangegorman Development to hire a minimum percentage of new employees from the Grangegorman area (Dublin 7 and Dublin 1). You can find the Grangegorman Employment Charter here.
The Charter is promoted and implemented in partnership with the GDA, contractors, the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection/Intreo, the National Development Finance Agency, local employment services and community organisations. Until recently, employment opportunities have been focused largely around the construction phase of the Grangegorman Development with the first permanent jobs in the operational phase of the development will be coming on stream in 2020 with the completion of TU Dublin’s new East and Central Quads.
The GLLF hosts regular ‘Meet the Contractor’ events on the Grangegorman campus where local people can meet with hiring Grangegorman contractors to find out about employment opportunities. The GLLF also organises an annual apprenticeship information event on the Grangegorman campus which brings Grangegorman contractors looking to hire apprentices together with local people interested in apprenticeships.
