The North East Inner City (NEIC) Initiative is a social regeneration initiative endorsed by Government involving local communities in the NEIC, businesses and statutory agencies creating opportunities to bring about lasting, positive change in the area.
Work experience has the potential to make a real difference in the lives of young people. Often, work placements can reflect and reproduce patterns of inequality with working class students getting working class placements and middle class pupils experiencing the benefits of ‘professional placements’. The NEIC work experience placement programme is a conscious effort to combat this trend and is one strand in a coordinated effort to open doors, raise awareness and aspirations and ultimately to provide students in Dublin 1 schools with access to and insight into professions and career paths outside their existing network.

In 2018 the NEIC Initiative placed almost 100 transition year students from 2 schools in Dublin 1 in high quality work experience placements across businesses and civil and public service organisations in Dublin 1 and Dublin 2. Based on the positive impact of the placements and feedback from students, schools and organisations the programme was extended to include all 6 DEIS schools in the NEIC area and in 2019 we secured 429 placements for 225 students across 93 organisations. Organisations included PwC, A&L Goodbody, McCann Fitzgerald, State Street, Central Bank of Ireland, Department of the Taoiseach, Beauchamps Solicitors, Matheson, J.P. Morgan, Verve Marketing and Events, AIG, IBEC, Total Produce, Dublin City Radio, Irish Water Department of Education and Skills, Dublin City Council, City of Dublin Education and Training Board, Three, The Convention Centre, Croke Park, Irish Life, Kennedy Wilson and Oracle.


For the academic year 2022/2023 we are looking to secure high quality work-experience placements for 420 students.
The feedback from past participants was overwhelmingly positive and we are asking all businesses and civil and public service organisations within Dublin 1 and Dublin 2 to consider hosting a local Dublin 1 student on a work experience placement.
