The Action Plan for Jobs is a whole of Government initiative that mobilises all Government Departments to take steps that will promote job creation. We are currently preparing the 2017 Action Plan for Jobs which will be published early in 2017.

  1. Delivering the skills for a growing economy;
  2. Stimulating regional growth;
  3. Maintaining and enhancing competitiveness;
  4. Growing Irish companies;
  5. Driving entrepreneurship and start-up companies;
  6. Developing and deepening the impact of foreign direct investment;
  7. Increasing labour market participation;
  8. Improving access to finance for SMEs; and
  9. Realising sectoral opportunities.
