Over the last 12 months, we have seen an increasing demand for engineers from companies in Ireland within the electronics, semiconductor and software industries. The sense is that there is a fresh optimism about the growth of the Irish economy. Official figures seem to reflect this, stating that Ireland’s economy has grown 4.8% over the last year and is one of the fastest growing economies across the EU. It seems the Celtic Tiger is about to roar again.
The OECD states that ‘after its robust rebound in 2014, the Irish economy is projected to continue growing strongly during the next 2 years’, so it looks very much like this jobs growth will continue. The latest example of this is the $40m investment in Movidius, who design vision processing systems and are based in Dublin.
I’ve visited Ireland on a number of occasions, for both business and holiday. I think the approach to life, friendliness and stunning natural beauty are real assets in making the country an attractive destination for people looking for new job opportunities. And who can forget the Guinness, of course!
I was in Dublin last month. The taxi driver who picked me up couldn’t wait to tell me about how busy he was with increasing numbers of customers to/from Dublin Airport on business trips and that ‘Ireland was back in the game’!
