Am I allowed to work in Ireland, and what is the process to begin work in the Irish health service?

Many healthcare jobs are in great demand within the Irish health service so you may well qualify for a visa under the National Critical Skills List. Qualified applicants are welcomed from outside the EU as well as within.

Critical skills employment permits also provide for your immediate family to reside in Ireland, and for your spouse or partner to work without the need for an additional work permit.

Care and Trust are core values of the HSE so that staff can work in a positive environment, and our goal is to give our international staff a feeling of care and trust right from the start.
