We check out what you need to get electrical jobs in Ireland

Finding work in any industry in the Republic of Ireland right now can be a big ask, but that's not to say that there aren't opportunities available in almost all sectors, despite what the media may tell you every day in the newspapers. Yes, the economy is still in very bad shape, but that doesn't mean that the whole country has ground to a halt. There may be fewer jobs available at any given time, but they're still out there, so there's no reason for you to give up your job search just yet.

When it comes to finding electrical jobs in Ireland things are going to be particularly challenging. Due to the fact that the global economic collapse and its knock on effects in Ireland essentially destroyed the entire country's construction industry it is no surprise that electricians are a commodity of which there is a distinct surplus of right now.

With so many qualified and experienced electricians out of work at the moment, you're going to need to do whatever you can in order to give yourself the best possible chance of finding a position to keep you ticking over.

We recommend you take a look at some of the building management companies across the country. These companies are responsible for the upkeep, health and safety of all their buildings, so they often have need for electricians in order to ensure that everything is kept up to code on an electrical front.

In these positions you may also be required to carry out a number of other manual jobs, such as tiling, basic carpentry and plumbing. The wages won't be quite what you are used to, with the average wage coming in at little over €10.50 per hour.

We recommend you keep an eye on the major job sites like monster.ie, loadzajobs.ie and nixers.com in order to monitor the availability of these positions. It'd also be a good idea to check in person with your nearby building management companies as to the availability of work.
