Moving to Ireland from the United States
An established track-record of moving to Ireland from the United States
According to the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland there are currently 800 US firms operating in Ireland employing over 180,000 staff. While many may have considered that the COVID-19 pandemic brought all that to an end, the evidence shows that is not the case. In 2020, IDA Ireland secured 246 new investments creating 20,123 new jobs with 52% of these destined for outside Dublin. Ireland continues to punch above its weight when it comes to attracting the capital of some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies. US multinationals prefer to invest in markets and economies that are growing, and on this basis, Ireland easily stands out from the rest of Europe and many emerging markets. So you can be confident that Ireland will continue to be an attractive prospect for US investment.
The driver for moving to Ireland from the United States
In established operations in Ireland, many US companies are naturally keen to tap into the local and European talent pool to build their European operations. However, in order to build the linkage with the US business and establish a similar modus operandi in Ireland, it is important that some of the key staff in the US operation relocate to Ireland to support this crucial expansion. This is also a differentiating factor for large firms when recruiting top talent. Many ambitious executives are keen to work overseas and build their International capability.
