We want to enable more communities in Ireland to increase the number of remote workers, that is, people in full time employment the same as an office worker, just without the office.
To do that we need access to new platforms and resources we previously haven’t had. We need to look more European than local. The jobs you see here aren’t on the highstreet, they have no Irish address, there was no jobs announcement. But yes, they hire here, AND a bunch of them got together to tell you how much they make on one easy to use spreadsheet.
We know that one remote job won’t convince you it’s safe to move out of a city – you need a safety net and a diverse set of career options. To help you see into the world of remote work and the vast array of opportunities there, we’ve just created our first ecosystem map! Got corrections? let us know at email@example.com
You need new job sites, sign up to a few different ones.
Sign up to Abodoo. You’re anonymous until you decide to proceed with a match, and if you’re in Ireland, all of these jobs are hiring remotely in Ireland specifically. They minimise the work you need to put in by only starting the process when you and the companies match. The average salary on Abodoo is 45k to 60k. It’s free and it really is your first stop.
Hop on over to Honest.Work, which is a new platform founded by Stevie Buckley this year. Here, all roles are shown to you with everything up front, some are remote, some not so, some are in the middle. It’s definitely worth checking in here if you’re looking at going remotely.
