Why Ireland?

Ireland has one of the highest standards of living in Europe, and thanks to its geographical location and the fact that English is one of Ireland's official languages, an impressive number of multinational companies have their head offices here, providing a wealth of opportunities.
With a population of 6.7 million people on the island of Ireland and a diaspora that is estimated at more than 80m people, this small country has a huge reach. You could say that Ireland is very good at making an impact that matters! Our workforce comprises a mix of both Irish and international workers - currently, 23% of Deloitte Ireland's staff come from outside Ireland - so international professionals can count on a warm welcome.
Our country is known for its relaxed way of life and a variety of beautiful landscapes. Outdoor activities feature prominently in Irish culture, with beaches, mountain ranges, gardens and green fields scattered across the country. Our cities are also deemed to be some of the most liveable in the world, partly due to the stable economy, world-class education and some of the world’s best working conditions. The social environment reflects the Irish lifestyle, with a heavy focus on sport, arts, music and fashion.Importantly, Ireland welcomes diversity and inclusion, with numerous languages spoken and the existence of a large variety of cultural communities.

Neha Dayyala, Assistant Manager in Risk Advisory, Limerick

The most enjoyable aspect of being back in Ireland is the opportunity to experience a real quality of life amongst family and friends while also being involved in some very interesting engagements. The recent uplift in domestic economic activity has been very encouraging and results in a very demanding yet rewarding working environment. That said, people are very much encouraged to enjoy some down time outside of work to maintain that real work life balance.
