Teresa Mallon
Message from IASE Chairperson - Teresa Mallon

“Over the past five years the National Job Shadow Day has been extremely positive in promoting the principles of equality and inclusion in recruitment policy and practice and there is a genuine appetite among employers to support positive initiatives for people with disabilities, like Job Shadow Day. It is also an excellent means of breaking down barriers and addressing fears that employers may have in facilitating the inclusion of people with a disability into the work force.  


The Job Shadow Day has also been successful in raising awareness among employers of an untapped pool of people with a huge range of abilities and an eagerness to secure employment. We want to build on the strengths of the 2011 initiative and build an even greater awareness of the significance of equal employment opportunities in the lives of people with disabilities in Ireland”.



The Irish Association of Supported Employment,(IASE) is delighted to announce the significant level of support received to date from the Government and representatives from Seanad Eireann for the National Supported Employment Week and Job Shadow Initiative, which take place this week (23rd to 27th April 2012 inclusive). In particular, IASE are delighted that An Taoiseach Mr Enda Kenny TD is supporting the Job Shadow Initiative by having Mr Cian O’ Connor shadowing him on Wednesday 25th as he carries out his very busy Leadership role.


Also on Wednesday 25th at 1.30pm, An Taoiseach, Mr Enda Kenny will launch an Irish accessible recruitment website which provides employers with all the information they need to hire somebody with a disability. This accessible website includes an Employers Guide that will assist employers throughout the recruitment phases of employing an individual with a disability and it was developed and spearheaded by STEP Supported Employment Service and Irish, in association with IASE and a number of Supported Employment Services within the greater Dublin region.
