DCU Ability began working with Applegreen in 2019.
The Applegreen sites provide a wide range of training opportunities for our participants as well as the chance to be part of a large supportive team.
DCU Ability have piloted an internship programme with Applegreen, with successful candidates being offered paid contracts of employment.
The internship includes experience and training in the retail, catering and customer service skills and is supported and monitored by the team.
The DCU Ability team continue to work with Applegreen so that we can offer this internship programme to our participants in the future.
The presence of local Applegreen sites close to our participants’ communities allows scope for the partnership to develop and expand in the future.
