Moving to Ireland

by PaSone Online Now Oct 15, 2012 at 11:20 AM

Hi my name is Nebojsa I`m Serbian I applied for job in Ireland online it`s company in Wexford called Lionbridge who is searching for person who knows Croatian language (Croatian Speakers required in Wexford).For Serbians is required work permit to work in Ireland,and I know that the employer rarely employs workers who don`t have work permit.So my question is because knowledge of Croatian language is very rarely,and I guess that few workers from the EU knows that language is it possible to person who don`t have work permit gets the job,are the company willing to invest in workers without work permits for such type of work.Is there anyone who is interested to share their experience about it.Thank you very much...

    EU law requires that employers must offer jobs to EU residents. Jobs can only be offered to non-EU residents if it can be shown that no EU resident can fulfil the role. The employer would then assist in obtaining a work permit.

    However, I am sure there are quite a few Croatian speakers already resident in EU countries (including Ireland).

    If the employer finds that you fulfil the role better than any other applicant then I am sure it will assist you with obtaining a work permit. But no reputable employer would employ you without a work permit (the penalties for doing so are substantial) and, of course, you would be very foolish to work illegally.

    I hope you are successful in your application. Good luck!
