More staff will be employed as service expands
Redevelopment work on two floors of the Granary Building in Michael Street in Limerick city is nearly complete for occupancy by the HAP Shared Services Centre.
The office fit-out being carried out on behalf of Limerick City and County Council by Flynn Management and Contracting Limited will be able to cater for additional staff of up to 100 people as the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) scheme expands.
Limerick City and County Council operates the HAP Shared Services Centre on behalf of all 31 local authorities across the country as well as the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive.
The service is fully funded by the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government.
There are currently 42 people employed in the HAP SSC and this is scheduled to rise to around 100 as the project matures. Sixty per cent of the current staff have been recruited from the private sector with the remainder from local authorities, primarily Limerick City and County Council.
