Career & Graduate Study Opportunity
There are excellent job opportunities available in the ICT sector in Ireland. The Irish Government is to amend the work permit processing system in a bid to attract overseas workers to fill skill gaps in crucial areas like ICT and engineering. The Government has an ongoing commitment to generate thousands of jobs in the ICT sector every year. At present there are as many as 5,000 job vacancies in Ireland’s burgeoning ICT sector and this gap could grow as Ireland hurtles towards becoming the digital capital of Europe. Prospective employers include: Accenture, Analog Devices, Intel, Microsoft, SAP, Synopsys and Xilinx.
