Irish emigrants living in Australia have promised free flights by the employment agency if they return to vacancies in the health, pharmaceutical, construction, financial and IT sectors.
Australia was an optional destination for many young Irish emigrants after the collapse of the Celtic tiger in 2008. An estimated 100,000 Irish people have moved to Australia between 2008 and 2014.
Emigration reached the peak of a surge in recession in 2012, with 17,400 people moving from Ireland to Australia, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics (CSO).
Improved home economies and higher visa restrictions in Australia have seen the number drop dramatically. Last year only 5,300 people came to Australia from Ireland.
The number of people moving from Australia to Ireland over the same period has been gradually increasing, from 4,500 in 2012 to 7,200 last year.
The latest migration statistics from the civil society organization show that more Irish citizens returned to Ireland (28,400) from the left (28,300) in twelve months to April 2018. Although net internal migration is low, it seems important because the Irish economy reaches full employment .
In an effort to bring back several Irish workers back, FRS Recruitment is conducting a voyage in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, from Thursday 8 November to Tuesday 13th place.
In the Irish health service, 150 free vacancies were filled in January, more than 100 nurses and related medical professionals, 120 construction positions and an unknown number of IT posts. There are vacancies in every country.
After six months of continuous employment, the Agency will reimburse the cost of flights for all successful candidates to AUS $ 1000 (EUR 938). The candidate must be employed with the FRS Recruitment customer within a period of three months after returning to Ireland.
This is in addition to the "strong, attractive packages" that will be available to the potential return of expatriates, according to the FRS. In some cases, transfer packages will be offered, depending on the employer.
FRS Recruit Director Colin Donnery said that the incentive to fly in response to the problems employers are employing candidates for filling vacancies in these sectors in Ireland.
"As the country is approaching full-time employment, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find suitably qualified staff. Companies in Ireland are increasingly seeking more to find people to fulfill important roles. These companies are not just about filling a vacancy but about finding the right one a candidate that suits their needs, "he said.
Participants in the roadmap will receive a range of information on moving back to Ireland, insight into the current labor market in Ireland, including wage data, as well as practical advice on how to handle logistics and documentation.
"During the recession, many skilled, educated people left these shores and sought out opportunities that simply were no longer available in Ireland. Australia was a particularly popular location, given the successful Down Under at that time.
"Many of these emigrants have since gone on to develop strong career in Australia, increase their experience and maintain impressive curriculum vitae," said Donnery.
"There is a particularly high demand for staff in construction, IT, health care, medical devices / pharmaceuticals and the financial sector at the moment. There are many Irish people working in these areas in Australia that would be very interesting for employers in that country. We know how much they need their knowledge in this market and how these excellent positions can bring a fantastic opportunity to return home. "
