Working in Ireland

The demand for nurses in Ireland is strong and it is becoming an increasingly popular destination for nurses, particularly those looking to work and travel throughout Europe.

To gain employment as a health professional in Ireland you will need to be registered to work in your health profession by the relevant health board.  A list and links to the key Irish health boards is provided below.

You will also need to obtain an employment permit unless you are a citizen of the European Union – there are 9 types of employment permits. Information on employment permits can be found on the Ireland Department of Jobs website. 

Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation 

Depending on what country you are coming from, you may also require a visa. Australian citizens do NOT require a visa to enter Ireland.

To ensure your application and job search runs smoothly, we recommend using an agency that specialises in placing Australian health professionals in Ireland, such as CCM. You can contact them at the link below.
