Hiring expats

Ireland and India have a long history of economic and cultural ties, with many of the provisions of the Constitution of India reported as drawn from the Constitution of Ireland. It may be purely co-incidental that our national flags are similar or perhaps there is a recognition of our shared histories.

Economic ties have been greatly encouraged in the last decade, evidenced by the formation of the Ireland Indian Business Associated, IIBA, in 2008. The Taoiseach or Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, is himself of Indian/ Irish extraction.

In recent years Ireland has been benefiting from India’s history of producing high level, well – educated software engineers, big data and ICT experts. Indian tech’ companies –  such as Aditi Technologies, Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services –  have established operations in Ireland. Indian nationals have filled high skill tech’ roles in Ireland and have been choosing Ireland to complete their education, with Silicon Republic noting Ireland as the best place to develop a software career in 2017.
