Local TD, Alan Kelly, Minister for Public and Commuter Transport has
welcomed the announcement by County Manager Joe McGrath of a
new Local Authority Social Employment Scheme for North Tipperary.
Under the scheme thirty people will be taken on commencing in
September. The successful applicants will not have an impact on any
existing staff or their jobs. The applicants will integrate with the
Council to alleviate over stretched staff at present. It is envisaged
that more positions could be filled in the future but the scheme will
start with thirty positions.
Minister Kelly said “I am delighted with this announcement as it will
give people very valuable experience working in the council”.
