Who We Are

Building Ireland's Remote Working Community

Grow Remote is 20 people in a WhatsApp group- co-working managers, freelancers, nomads, remote workers and remote working companies. We believe that developing a community around remote working is key to building brilliant rural communities, and that Ireland has amazing potential for remote work opportunities across the country. We want to bring community groups, companies and workers together to enable our communities to thrive.

Our aim is to uncover and build a full community around remote working. To do that we need the infrastructure (spaces, broadband, online connection platforms), the people (community leaders & advocates) and the resources (education, tools to make this local or funding).
Want to help us reach our goals, or become part of this growing community? Get involved by clicking below!

Educate

Did you know that according to Remote How, 40% of people say they don’t work remotely because they don’t know where to find a job?

Connect with us to get regular updates when we build new resources or hear of new opportunities! We’ve got the basics down here, have a mailing list here and support active learning in our Facebook group.

Our Chief Education Officer, Rose Barrett, will be updating this a lot.

Connect

Remote jobs can sometimes disconnects the worker from local communities a little. After all, work is usually a large part of your daily social interaction! A local Grow Remote chapter acts as that social connection.

Right at this very moment, there are 1,000 jobs in rural Ireland, but there’s a disconnect between those looking for workers and those looking for work. Local chapters mean joining the dots and creating more opportunities for people who want to live outside of cities.

We know from a recent AndCo survey that lack of a real world community is the #1 challenge of remote workers, and you can set up a chapter so solve for that. 

Engage

So you have the job sorted, now you want to make the most of remote work! Whether you want to move out of the city, travel around and see what you like or find somewhere great to settle down, Grow Remote can help. From town tasters to intros to new places to live and work, we’ve got you!
