Ireland is Hiring Webinar Series

As part of our Ireland is Hiring campaign which was launched in 2018, FRS Recruitment created an Ireland is Hiring webinar series to share advice and information to Irish expats thinking about moving home. Moving home can be a daunting experience for many expats, especially for those who have lived abroad for many years and are unsure what to expect once they make the make the move home. With the surge in many expats moving home since the pandemic, we noticed a lot of similar queries from many Irish expats moving home, most of these were around the jobs market, the housing market, the cost of living and what they needed in order to make the move efficient. From these queries we created episodes we knew Irish expats wanted to hear about!
