FIF is an initiative between ECR Ireland members, the Dept of Employment Affairs & Social Protection (DEASP) and Dept of Education to offer pre-employment training to early school leavers & young unemployed people.

The objective is to help people who are seeking employment while promoting the grocery industry as a sector for a worthwhile career. The FIF experience highlights the poor standard of CVs and young people’s state-of-readiness for job-seeking. Over the last 4 years, almost 4,500 young people have benefited from FIF sessions hosted by 100+ companies including Primeline Group.

The feedback from participating young people and companies has always been overwhelmingly positive. Taking part in Feeding Ireland’s Future complements many companies CSR policies and empowers company representatives. Primeline Group established a working relationship with FIF in 2016.  Prmeline Group participated in the 2016 & 2017 FIF event which, following from the success of both years has led us to participate in the 2018 event.

The FIF Skills for Work Month commenced with a launch event on May 17th 2018. FIF launched their event in the Royal Irish Academy and will close with a ceremony in June hosted at state buildings by DEASP
