Are you looking for work in Ireland or would you like to get a better job? Then join us on June 28, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 1.30 p.m., for an informational session on what it means to be employed in Ireland.

This free information session – which is geared at migrants living in Ireland – will tell you everything you need to know about employment in Ireland.

Topics covered will include:

  • Employment rights and entitlements

    You’ll get answers to questions such as: What is a PPSN (Personal Public Service Number) and why do I need one? How do I register to pay tax? What hours can I work with my visa?

  • Qualification recognition

    Find out how to have your degrees, certifications and other qualifications recognised in Ireland
  • Training

    Discover what further training and educational opportunities are available and open to you
  • Volunteering opportunities

    Learn what volunteering means in Ireland, how you can do it, and why it can be valuable career experience
  • Employment supports and services available

    Get information on the programmes, supports and services that can help you get into better or more consistent employment

  • CVs and interview skills

    Understand what employers look for in a CV or from candidates they are interviewing. (For example, did you know that you don’t need to put a photo or date of birth on your CV in Ireland?)

Everything you want to know about working in Ireland will be covered in this informational session.

This event is being organised by New Communities Partnership – Ireland’s largest migrant-led network – and is hosted by Galway City Partnership.
