Ireland is the only English-speaking country in the Eurozone and is globally connected as a home to many of the world’s top high-performance companies. Here are VHR’s Top 7 Reasons to Work in Ireland. 

Why Engineers Should Work In Ireland:

1. Education

Ireland’s workforce is one of the most educated in the world; universities are among some of the best research institutions in 19 fields globally.

Some of the world’s biggest and best companies have located key strategic research facilities to benefit from these skilled workers – making it a haven for skills demand and job opportunities, driving innovation across engineering industries.

2. Taxation

Ireland has a unique progressive income tax system (including employee social insurance contributions). Tax rates are ones of the lowest in the world and they won’t change as the maintenance at that level is a tradition for successive governments.

3. Economy

Irish economy is growing faster than any other European country as the economy grew by 7.3% in 2017; this flourish in the economy is due to industrial trade and international co-operation.

Ireland’s competitiveness in business has also improved in recent years as the country moved towards a modern free-market economy.

7. Culture

Saint Patrick’s Day, music, Guinness, Whiskey, Irish Stew, Golf and beautiful rolling hills are all part of the Irish culture, landscape and traditions. Ireland is famous for maintaining its vibrant cultural heritage. You will never get bored in Ireland.
