Relocate to Ireland

At Locum Express we are recruiting for full time posts across all specialties and disciplines at Registrar and Consultant levels across Ireland and Northern Ireland.


Why Relocate to Ireland?

Other than the fact, it's Ireland and need we say anymore, there are other reasons to consider relocating to the fair isle!

Training Opportunities: are you interested in working at a hospital that has specific training on certain specialities?  Developing your career in Ireland will give you the experience you might need to develop your career to the next level.

Learning Opportunities: our client hospitals allow time for on-the-job learning.  You will benefit from having direct communication and guidance from Consultants and developing a network of medical contacts in your field of interest.

Cost of Living Benefits: locations outside Ireland's main cities provide Doctors with a potential reduced cost of living. We can assist you by researching accommodation and provide price comparison information on choosing a location outside of the main cities and towns.

Lifestyle and Education: if you are relocating with your family, some of our client locations will suit you in terms of decreased waiting lists for schools, smaller class sizes, ease of settling into the Irish lifestyle and local communities.

And don't forget our epic scenery, nature, hill walking, surfing, fishing and the Irish pub in addition to competitive remuneration and great career progression opportunities!
