Recruitment Agency specialising in hiring Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Ireland

Anyone with the legal right to work or hire people in Ireland may apply. Employers can register here. Jobseekers register here (Free of charge). EmployRefugees.com is a recruitment agency started by Ghada McCarthy, who is herself a Syrian refugee resettled in Ireland. We have access to a broad countrywide network of Refugee & Asylum-Seeker talent, who are keen to prove themselves in the Irish world of work. Don't forget that many refugees and asylum seekers have significant training and experience in their own home countries, and several of these countries would actually have had a higher standard of education compared to here. Not only will hiring from us increase the diversity and inclusiveness of your workforce, it also could contribute profoundly to your workplace culture (with employees having unexpected and advanced skill-sets). It could potentially reinforce and reinvigorate a solid work ethic, with the addition of highly motivated Refugee and Asylum-Seeker staff.

Tarek is a refugee from Aleppo, Syria. He got in touch with the employrefugees.com platform to look for a job he states - As a young man, it is not easy to stay in home as I feel I have the energy and I want to integrate into the Irish society with a job that I can be active and to feel that I am one of this big society. Home is everything and I feel Ireland is my home but having a job is like building your confidence and personality.
