Multilingual Jobs in Dublin – Living and Working in Dublin

As the capital city of Ireland, Dublin is modern and vibrant, making it an attractive place to live and work. The city has a strong transport network including a comprehensive bus network, which makes getting around easy. And with plenty of bars, cinemas, restaurants and other leisure facilities to enjoy, it is easy to cultivate a healthy work/life balance. Dublin’s population is quite small compared to other capital cities, at around half a million people, many of whom are younger people enjoying the city centre lifestyle.

Jobs in Dublin

Ireland is recovering from an economic crisis in 2008/9 and is now seeing rapid growth, with many international tech companies situated in or nearby Dublin, as well as plenty of work in other business industries which require contact centre managers and agents as well as sales representatives. The city has a high cost of living, but to compensate salaries are often much higher than in other parts of the EU.

Finding accommodation in Dublin

Much of the accommodation within Dublin is apartments, although you can find larger houses on the outskirts of the city if you’re willing to commute. It’s easy to find accommodation to rent or buy – use websites like Daft.ie or Property.ie as your first port of call, as they’ll have the latest availability and prices for hundreds of potential options. You can also find cheaper house shares and flats by using estate agents or checking local classified adverts in the newspapers.

Permits and taxes when working in Dublin

Anyone moving to Dublin from a country within the EU or the EEA, or from Switzerland, won’t need a permit to live or work in the country as you’ll enjoy freedom of movement. Since the immigration policies were tightened following the economic crisis in 2008/9, it is harder for people outside of these countries to get a permit, as prioritisation for work is always given to Irish citizens and then those from Europe.

Anything you earn while living in Dublin is liable for tax, which will be paid using the PAYE system unless you’re self-employed or a sole trader. Anything you earn under 32,800 EUR is taxed at a flat rate of 20% for individuals. However if you’re married or in a civil partnership, you’ll have a joint allowance of 41,800 EUR. Earnings above these amounts are taxed at 40%. If you’re aged over 65 and you’re either single or widowed, you can earn up to 18,000 EUR tax-free.
