The Connect to Success NI portal was introduced in 2016 and allowed employers and training providers to advertise apprenticeship and work experience opportunities throughout Northern Ireland. We have been made aware that the background software supporting the Connect to Success portal is no longer supported and should a fault occur, full functionality will not be restored. We have therefore decided to close down the Connect to Success portal with effect from close of business on Friday1st December 2023. No further opportunities can be advertised on Connect to Success from this date.

In its place, the Department for Communities’ (DfC) JobApplyNI website is an alternative free, straightforward and easy way for employers to advertise job vacancies and apprenticeship opportunities.  We would encourage all employers and training providers registered on the Connect to Success portal to consider using the JobApplyNI website.

To register on JobApplyNI, employers and training providers should:

  1. Visit JobApplyNI
  2. From the home screen, select the green log-in/register button at the top right-hand side.
  3. You can then register your details with or without your company registration number.

Should you have any difficulties or questions when registering please email or telephone 02890 909327 (these details are also available on the JobApplyNI home screen).  Once registered you can advertise your apprenticeships.

Alternatively, you may also find the following options useful for advertising an apprenticeship opportunity:

  • Your own website.
  • Via a private training provider.
  • Further Education and Higher Education establishments (colleges / universities).
  • The UCAS apprenticeship portal
  • Recruitment Agencies.

Should you have any queries on the above please contact:
