Live & Work in Ireland
Looking for multilingual jobs in Ireland? Have a touch of the wanderlust bug and the idea of working abroad has always been a passion of yours?
Why not live and work in Ireland?
Ireland is, in fact, one of the top locations for language jobs across Europe. It has been voted one of the friendliest countries in Europe - Which would be a great place to start your life abroad.
A Place to Hang your Hat after Work
In order to find a place to call your own in Ireland, you may need to do a bit of research. Once you find one the set up couldn't be easier. All you need is a full-time multilingual job and one month's rent as your deposit.
The cherry on top is that many are already furnished, so that's one weight off your mind.

Trotter Tip: From our experience we strongly recommend you cement down your multilingual job before you go looking for your little piece of heaven. Otherwise, you could be facing a long commute to work.
Money Money Money
While you work in Ireland, you are going to need to set up an Irish Bank Account in order to have access to your wages/salary and the great thing is, you are spoilt for choice as there are... a number of banks in Ireland. Of course the most common are:
To open an account is easy really, you just need proof of address which can be a phone, electricity or gas bill (which will have your Irish home address). However, if you are still on the house hunt, many banks are willing to accept an official employment contract as proof of address, which you can get as soon as you secure the multilingual job in Ireland.
When looking to live and work in Ireland it can be easy, especially for an EU citizen, because to work in Ireland you do not need a work permit.
BUT it is important to set up a PPS Number (Personal Public Service Number) mainly for taxes and welfare.
With a PPS Number, you will have to pay taxes such as:
- PAYE (Pay As You Earn)
- PRSI (Pay Related Social Insurance)
- USC (Universal Social Charge)
