Providing opportunities for people to get back to work is the number one priority of the Irish Government and progress is on track to replace all of the jobs lost in the recession by 2018.

Here are some resources to help you find work in Ireland:

  • Jobs Ireland is a fully searchable jobs board run by the Department of Social Protection. You can search for a job using a range of criteria.
  • IT’s Happening Here features opportunities in the technology sector. The site was established to help promote career opportunities in Irish owned software companies.
  • Grad Ireland is Ireland’s official graduate jobs and careers website.
  • Citizens Information offers a range of information on finding a job, from advice on what to include in your CV to the recognition of international qualifications.
  • In addition, there are many recruitment agencies across the jobs market offering positions in Ireland.
