Ireland is surrounded by an ocean full of talent. Having just hit a record week of new job announcements (over 690 this week alone), we are awash and overflowing with career opportunities. We, recruiters, are lucky enough to witness the ever-growing expansion of our recruitment services outside the core, overstretched, urban Irish hubs.
This week alone, there have been major announcements in Limerick. We heard great news for the tech world with the L&D Centre of Excellence with Johnson & Johnson and new roles with Crowley-Carbon.
Looking to the beautiful, North-West Coast; Sligo is making waves with an enormously exciting cluster of AI focused organisations that are making large waves globally. They come together and have formed a high tech, supportive, balanced operative that is tempting further high profile international companies to get a piece of the action.
It is our responsibility to ensure that these companies find the talent they need to thrive here in Ireland and to continuously offer Ireland as a superb place to live and do business.

As I interview people more recently, I notice that more and more candidates are realising that they have both the capability and confidence to re-think, re-align and re-write what have been boring working norms and assumptions here in Ireland for years.
This entire Ireland is magnificent, each area is unique, and confidence in regional areas as a place to return and work is growing.
For anyone looking at options for further their career throughout Ireland, our dedicated RECRUITERNation team are successfully placing roles through the 32 counties and could help you make the move too.
