Tús Community Employment Scheme

The DFC is a participant in the Tús community employment scheme. The Tús initiative is a community work placement scheme providing short-term working opportunities for unemployed people. We have been working with our local Area partnership in the past months to organise a scheme that is suitable for the Co-op and our members.

We have two additional Tús positions in the shop starting from February 2019. All positions are for 19.5 hours a week. The contract is for 12 months. For more information for shop operative role please see here.

If you have been unemployed and in receipt of social welfare payments for 12 months and are interested in this position and able to begin work in February please contact and we will be in touch.

Volunteering at the Co-op

We have had a huge number of new volunteers join the Shop Team since our move to Kilmainham, and they’ve made a huge difference the quality of service we can provide to members.

Volunteer is a great way to get more involved in our community, learn about our ethos and get discounts on your shopping at the Co-op.

If you are interested in joining the team as a volunteer – on a monthly or weekly basis – please contact and we will schedule you in for the next available training session.
