Considering a Move Back to Ireland?
With many of our Irish diaspora returning home for Christmas, thoughts may turn to a permanent return to Ireland in 2020. The market here for finance professionals remains robust, notwithstanding various global events such as Brexit, among others.
One thing is for sure – planning and preparation is key. With that in mind, we are sharing some insights for those who may be considering a return to Ireland in the short to medium term.
Do Your Research
It’s important to do your research on the Irish market before you move back. Understand the market and current salary guide based on your level. Have a realistic expectation in place so that you can return to Ireland with your eyes open and meaningful expectations set.
Have a conversion with someone in a similar role in Ireland. Perhaps get in contact with a previous work colleague to see how the market is progressing for them, career progression opportunities and how the market has changed since you left or how it looks against your expectations.
If you have been away for some time, it might take a little longer than you expect to return home. Strictly speaking, in the sense of finding the “right” job back at home, the more experienced you are, the longer it may take. Don’t panic, there will be opportunities and you will find the right opening. Hang in there.
