International Careers

Did you know that thousands of Irish citizens are employed by international organisations?

An international career provides an opportunity to work on exciting and challenging projects in a multicultural environment, with the possibility to work and travel abroad.

Ireland places a special value on its membership with international organisations and opportunities are available within the European Union (EU) where there is a free movement of labour, growing harmonisation of standards and mutual recognition of qualifications.

As an EU citizen, you should relish an opportunity to play a key role in the EU's success!

International Careers Fair

Last year, the Public Appointments Service and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade co-hosted the International Careers Fair 2017 with the support of the United Nations Population Fund. This event was held at the Printworks in Dublin Castle on the 7th of December 2017. This was the first time that this event has been held in Dublin.

The event provided a unique opportunity for graduates to engage with international organisations (ranging from the United Nations, the European Personnel Selection Office to the European Central Bank) and learn more about the opportunities, requirements and access paths to the multilateral sector. Over 50 organisations exhibited at this event with over 1,600 people attending this unique and niche International Careers Fair.
