Working abroad

Are you considering moving to another European country to find a job? Looking to get some work experience while experiencing a different culture? The more information you find, the better. We're here to help with that.

Finding a job

Your CV should be used to promote whatever it is about you that means you should get that job. For tips on how to write up your CV, take a look at SpunOut's advice or at their articles on interview tips.. Visit Spunout Compass tool for advice tailored to your own needs.

What am I entitled to?

As an Irish citizen, you (and your family) are entitled to free movement within the EU member states. This means that you can move to and stay in any of the EU states without requiring a Visa. There are, however, some conditions regarding the length of your stay, so please read more about this on our You In Europe page.
