dc.description.abstractThe Tús programme was established by the Irish Government in 2011 to re-engage long term unemployed individuals with the labour market and improve work readiness. The aim of the present study was to empirically examine the effect, if any, of placement on this programme on the perceived employability of participants using the psycho-social construct as advanced by Fugate, Kinicki and Ashforth (2004). The research explored employability in relation to: (1) increased employability owing to placement on Tús: (2) increased job search activities owing to placement on Tús; and (3) increased self-esteem owing to placement on Tús. Overall the hypotheses were not supported by the study apart from a significant difference in relation to increased self-esteem evident in participants on Tús.
