No job for Irish architects in Ireland...

No job for Irish architects in Ireland...

Postby Aseek » Sat Apr 30, 2011 11:15 pm

Just found add from Henchion+Reuter Architects (RIAI) looking for German speaking employee, 2 weeks ago Douglas Walles advertised on FAS for French speaking employee, out of this FAS advertising for 9 Work Placement Program Places (no salary position) which mean - NO JOB FOR ENGLISH SPEAKING ARCHITECTS WITH EXPERIENCE.
And in my humble opinion spending states money for sponsoring free employee to architectural office, while there are HUNDREDS of unemployed experienced architects is just outrageous.

What's your point? If one of the skills they need is a particular language, then so be it. Am I missing something?

Could it be that the firms mentioned have won or are competing for work in France and Germany? Given the pool of talent available there's bound to be some with languages skills as well.

Well H+R does have an office in Germany, so that could be the reason.

I don't understand the Fas work placement requirements, some offices are looking for very specific employees to carry out unpaid work (and not just someone looking for experience).

I'd be willing to bet that the person who gets the job has better spelling and grammar skills than you.

Might be true...
But most great architects may be considered to be mildly dyslexic or drink fosters...

become an artist...

Harsh!!!

When you get a credit recession predicated on a credit bust it is going to be very dificult to get work if you find yourself out of a job; simple supply overhang being leveraged by employers. There are plenty of places where english alone will get you a job, the question is do people have the ambition to go to Oz or wherever the work is to keep their CVs intact?

It's not harsh really. You should at least be able to write in the language you post a xenophobic rant about.

Sounds a bit like... "you should be able to have a learning difficulty or not be perfect and be discriminated against."

Strange how the honey-gilded compassion and concern of the professional classes
so often evaporates once the beneficiary is someone else . . .

It's unfortunately prevalent throughout. I actively refuse to give money to beggars with "irish citizen" on their cardboard or taxi drivers who flaunt the "irish taxi driver" card. The same people bemoan the fact that "our poor wee ones" have to leave the country and go to find work elsewhere. I bet the poor wee ones are treated better in those countries than the "fuck off back (to) where you came from" attitude their counterparts get here.

Agreed this is nonsense but I can see the taxi drivers point on the number of taxi licenses issued between 2001 and 2010 as part of the ECB/PD led supply side agenda; the amount of fuel consumed used by empty cabs driving around Dublin must significantly affect the balance of payments almost as much as the SUVs that bankraupt builders used when they used drive from McMansion to McMansion in the Bertie days when the banks were creating the bust with cheerled help from the ECB economists.

If ever there was a profession that benefits a practitioner getting wide and varied foreign work experience it is built environment; foreign experience should be celebrated...

Agreed but just look at France, Sarkozy has lost the plot in recent years; economic downturn = restless natives = misplaced racism which puts off high net worth foreigners investing = continuation of downturn.....
