Brazilian workers in Ireland

To work in Ireland there are some specifications, depending on the job, your education and goals. Most of the jobs for Brazilians in Ireland are for students who are on exchange and want to work up to 20 hours a week, changing to 40 hours a week during vacations. In this article you will see how to get a job in Ireland as a Brazilian.

In this article you will see how the majority of Brazilians get a job in the European country according to their education and goals for staying on Irish soil.

Basically, there are three types of visa to work in Ireland:

  • Stamp 1 – You already need to have a job offer before you even enter the country.
  • Stamp 2 – Visa to study and work in Ireland.
  • Stamp 4 – Visa for those who marry an Irish citizen, allowing employment and residence in the country.

In this article about jobs for Brazilians in Ireland, we are not going to delve into Stamp 4, because it is a very specific and clear case, because, obviously, when you marry a native, you acquire special rights, as it happens here at Brazil and in most western countries.

In the first case, Stamp 1, the person already arrives in Ireland with a proposal. This is common in areas such as medicine, technology, engineering and other technical professions or when the person works in a multinational, for example. In this case, as the person arrives in the country practically employed, in fact, in many cases, already employed, we will not delve into this article either, as our objective is to inform about how to get jobs for Brazilians in Ireland.

To get the Stamp 2, you will have to get basic jobs and you will need to renew your visa periodically to stay in the country. If you go to Ireland to exchange and work there, then you will get more fundamental positions, as the legislation does not allow a workload of more than 20 hours.

For those who have technical skills and a good fluent English, you can try more specific areas such as:

  • Health
  • Marketing
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Information technology

But these jobs require Stamp 1, as they usually require full hours and English fluent. If this is not your case, you need to go in search of Stamp 2 and everything will depend on your English.

What is your fluency in English?

This is the fundamental question to find the best jobs for Brazilians in Ireland. If you are not fluent in the language, then you are more likely to find employment in areas that do not require much contact with the public, such as cleaning, helping, barista or maintenance. Now, if you already have intermediate or advanced English, you can already be directed to positions that put you in contact with the public.

Therefore, when going to Ireland to study and work, train your English well, as this can guarantee you good opportunities to get the best jobs for Brazilians in Ireland, such as:

  • Receptionist
  • Monitor

  • Caixa
  • Casa de Família (cleaner or nanny) are the best options for most Brazilians, who go to the country in search of an opportunity. If this is your case, it is worth investing in English, talking a lot when you arrive in the country and dedicating yourself to being a qualified professional, taking on-site and online courses, acquiring knowledge and degrees that will open up opportunities.

Living in Ireland is a big life change for Brazilians and a dream that can come true if you dedicate yourself to learning the language and improving yourself professionally.
