Re: Foreign Nationals seeking work

Home Forums Ireland Architecture as a career Re: Foreign Nationals seeking work


As there appears to be an abundance of work available at present as Cad Technicans / Architectural Techs why might employment agencies relate a situation where Irish Firms are not interested in interviewing / hiring highly qualified foreign nationals?
I know a number of individuals(a couple of whom have left this country despondent having struggled to find employment in their fields) Is Ireland such a closed shop that fully qualified Architects with years of experience in their on countries cannot find junior positions from which to learn the regulations etc here?
Might any of you here have an opinion or constructive suggestion about this?
I realise that for many positions, it is important to have ‘Irish’ or ‘uk’ experience. Surely though there must be a route into the industry for fully qualified personel?
Any thoughts??
