Local Employment Service (LES)

The Limerick Local Employment Service (LES) provides a free and confidential information, guidance and job-searching support to job-seekers.

Our goal is to provide a range of quality professional services to unemployed jobseekers to help them find suitable employment, training and educational opportunities.

We work with both job-seekers and employers.


It is a challenging time for us all as we face this Covid-19 crisis together.

While we remain operational during Level 5 restrictions, our reception is closed to the public.

For enquiries, please call our Central Office on 061-412999 or Email: info@les.ie

We will do our best to assist you and your query will be forwarded to the relevant contact point. 

Please view our Covid-19 page for useful information and resources, available to keep you informed and safe.
