Social Work Internships In Ireland

If you’re focused on medicine and public health, you may be placed in a hospital, rehabilitation facility, mental health unit, or care facility for persons with disabilities.

Those with an interest in social care might find themselves in a job placement facility, community development center, or charity fighting homelessness. You could be placed with an advocacy group, assisting in grant writing, strategy and policy.

You’ll develop and strengthen your communication and interpersonal skills, from listening and earning trust, to showing empathy and facilitating groups.

Expect to do hands-on work like problem-solving, co-ordinating services, safety planning and organising. All the while, you’ll be developing both self-awareness and awareness of the factors that affect social problems.

If you’re ready to be challenged, rewarded, and grow both professionally and personally, this is the placement for you.
