To ask the Minister for Employment and Learning for a breakdown by district electoral area of the home address location of the present clientele of the Local Employment Intermediary Service within the Moyle District Council who have been found full-time employment.
Network Personnel deliver the Local Employment Intermediary Service (LEMIS) in the Moyle District Council area and the wider outreach NI Area 2 for clients with a common employability barrier. The table, which has been placed in the Assembly Library and on my Department’s website at http://www.delni.gov.uk/, provides a breakdown of the number of caseloads and the number of clients who entered employment by electoral areas, since the service began in September 2011.
There are currently 50 active clients; however, the flexible nature of LEMIS allows clients to disengage and re-engage whenever they wish to receive help and support. LEMIS clients can use the service on a voluntary basis at any time that suits them and this will not affect any benefits they may receive.
