Junior Chamber International Ireland (JCI) is seeking dynamic and enthusiastic people who are self driven, motivated and interested in increasing their exploitable skills set. These people are required to drive local change through launching a local JCI branch in their area with the assistance of JCI Ireland.

JCI or Junior Chamber International is a dynamic international community of young people in their 20's and 30's with the aim of providing development opportunities that empower its members to create positive change. With a network of more than 200,000 active members and millions of alumni participating in more than 6000 local organisations across the world, JCI is a place where young leaders and entrepreneurs meet, learn and grow.

JCI members are individuals that want to succeed, that want to be better and that want to improve the world in a positive and proactive way. Members come from all walks of life; from university students to corporate executives, from self employed professionals and business people to employees of multinationals or state organisations, but all share a common goal in terms of self improvement and contribution to society.

Getting involved with JCI offers an ideal opportunity for individuals to expand both their personal and professional networks, to get involved and give something back to the community, to have fun and to develop the skills to help them in their personal and professional life.

There are four areas within the organisation where members can get involved - individual, international, community, and business. Opportunities to organise projects and/or participate in training programmes are conducted in each area.

The opportunities at JCI are endless. You could get involved in a personal development training programme, attend an international JCI conference on the other side of the world or plan and organise a community project with fellow members.

Along with a wide variety of projects and training opportunities, JCI offer a wide variety of training programmes that members can avail of. Recent examples include public speaking and debating, sales training, interviewing techniques and time management seminars among others. This is complemented by an array of social events including bowling, barbecues, quiz nights, ballroom dancing, surfing and photography classes, so there's something for almost anyone.
