Work In Ireland In 2019! Still Europe’s No.1. Country To Live & Work

The Irish economy is on target for 7.5% full-year growth by the end of 2018. As we head into 2019 economic activity in the Republic of Ireland is projected to remain robust, despite uncertainties surrounding Brexit.  Economic growth of 4.1% is forecast for 2019, marginally below official Government forecasts. In Q3 employment stood at a healthy 69%.  This compares with an average rate over the past 20 years of just over 66%.

The total number at work now in the Republic of Ireland exceeds the figure reached at the height of the boom in 2008, when the construction sector accounted for a disproportionate share of economic activity in the State and a financial bubble was about to burst. At 5.4%,  the jobless rate has fallen to its lowest level since February 2008.

Here Are Our Top Reasons To Live And Work In Ireland In 2019!

(The Republic Of) Ireland Is A Member Of The EU

  • If you are an existing EU citizen, you will not need a work permit to work in Ireland.  Any EU citizen can freely move to Ireland and work in Ireland without any limitations. What’s more, your right to work there will not be impacted by the UK’s decision to leave the EU under ‘Brexit’ in 2019 as (the Republic of) Ireland is not part of the UK (unlike Northern Ireland). Furthermore, the currency is the euro, alongside 18 other EU member which use the Euro as their sole currency.
  • The Irish economy is generating more than 1,000 full-time jobs every week, while people are increasingly moving from part-time to full-time work.
  • Wages have shown growth also, with hourly earnings up 2.2% in 2017  and prediction they will increase by 3% in 2018.
