Ireland is one of the top European countries for multi-lingual job seekers due to the number of Technology companies and multinationals based in Dublin. As a result, an increasing number of employers are looking to recruit those who speak both English and a second, or third language. Over 1,000 global companies in IT, Social Media, Pharma, and Finance are based in Ireland. And the majority of them are serving the EMEA market. These multinationals all need multi-lingual staff to help them grow across the region. According to Statista, in 2020, Ireland’s average annual wage is around 49,000 Euros per year. The country ranks 3rd behind Luxembourg and Netherlands in average European salary.
Many people adore the traditional music and dance which is unique to Ireland. The country also offers breath-taking scenery and beautiful countryside peppered with parks, lakes, mountains, beaches, and cliffs.
Many multi-lingual employees find the Irish people to be friendly and welcoming. There will be lots of opportunities to socialize with local people through pubs, sports clubs, and lessons, etc. Many of the ex-pats who live here join clubs and make lifelong friendships.
For those who like a small slice of home, Dublin is very metropolitan, with people from literally every single country that you can think of walking its streets. Over 17% of the city’s population are foreign-born and this is reflected in the wide array of restaurants to be found in the city centre.
