Looking for a remote role?
As the work landscape has altered drastically, so too has the need for us to adapt to new ways of working, particularly if we’re remote. There are numerous challenges to working from home / the garden shed / the local hub including distractions, managing our time, loneliness, and motivation. Luckily, more and more companies have recognised this and are supporting their employees in numerous ways such as providing technology and software packages to aid communication and inclusion, training programmes for their managers on how to manage remote teams and providing wellness support.

Looking to hire remote talent?
Although there’s been a sea-change in talent acquisition over the past few years, particularly with the move to remote and hybrid, it’s still a highly competitive market and the best talent are in huge demand – it’s ferocious out there!

I just wanted to thank Grow Remote for indirectly helping me to find a role with Shopify. I wasn’t actually really looking for a move but I attended a networking event in Skibbereen hosted by Grow Remote at the Ludgate hub in Skibbereen and got chatting to a Shopify Recruitment Manager who was also attending the event. Only for Grow Remote hosting this event I wouldn’t have met Triona at Shopify and been in such a fantastic company.
Remote working (and COVID 19) also brought about professional opportunities for me. My background is in rural and community development. Through the Grow Remote jobs board, I saw a position advertised with The Wheel which I was lucky enough to secure. So I now find myself working in a very rewarding job, with a fantastic organisation and living in an area I love, Valentia Island.
