Job Search In Dublin

This part of Ireland was not populated until much later than other parts of Europe when the Celts arrived in Northern Ireland around 500BC. The Celts worked extremely hard once they had settled, and formed roads that were far better when compared to Roman standards. It wasn't the Celts, by now the native Irish, but the Vikings who were the people to build up towns and villages, and they took full advantage of the land by creating coastal harbours and building up urban centres to make up towns. Dublin was formed in this way, and the hard work is clear even today. In around 1170, Anglo-Normans arrived at Dublins gates and later the English so the Vikings were under constant threat of attack.

Dublins history is quite clear from the research that has taken place over many years. The area has continued to thrive and develop with castles later being built in and around Dublin, a more recent and famed addition is the Trinity College, built in the 1590's, which marked the future expansion of the City. Most of Dublins streets remain as they were intended, making it a wonderful place to visit for architecture and culture, and also for those looking to relocate away from other areas of Europe.

In the early times there was a distinct lack of jobs and work for the working class, when it could be found, was poorly paid, though todays Dublin is a far cry from the 1800's when millions of people died or emigrated to escape the great famine which devastated the land.

An Economic boom around the 1960's sadly meant that new buildings were constructed whilst there was some kind of shame about the old fashioned traditional buildings that were present, but by the 1980's the people were sympathetic to the old architecture and as mentioned, the mistakes had been made but the City was to move on and embrace their heritage.

The City has been cleaned up, is now a vibrant and very lively place to be, it's a pleasant city with plenty to see and it is very easy to get to from other parts of the UK and Europe with its excellent ferry and flight links.

Well known for its pubs (you have to try a typical Irish pub here with a pint of Guinness), café's and restaurants, job hunters finding casual or permanent work in the travel sector are generally not going to be disappointed. Companies like Brightwater Recruitment Specialists on Merrion Square, and HRM Executive Recruitment found on Fitzwilliam Square cover many sectors and welcome you to call or visit them to register if you are seeking sales, marketing, office, IT, Finance and legal vacancies.

The city also boasts a main port. Its main industries were commonly textiles manufacturing, shipbuilding, brewing and food processing but is now primarily commercial with a main port, which means for the job seeker of today that there is a good choice of roles within finance, admin, legal and other office based jobs. For those preferring to be involved within a specialised industry, there is a Scientific and Healthcare Recruitment Specialist that has a fabulous amount of websites covering other sectors, who can be found in Newmarket House at Newmarket Square - Life Science Recruitment.

Overall, Dublin is a fast-paced and compact City that brings in thousands of visitors each year, whilst plenty of people still like to relocate here to experience life in a small City that is full of commercial character.
