Working in Clare

Looking for Work

You have the right to work in Ireland when you have your permission letter confirming that you have been granted Temporary Protection under the EU Directive. You can also work for yourself (self-employment) and you can access vocational training in Ireland.


Clare Local Development Company is providing on the ground support to support Ukrainians in County Clare.

SICAP Development Staff are linking in with relevant agencies to organise and provide:

  • Working Life in Ireland programme
  • CV and interview preparation
  • Signposting employment opportunities
  • Additional English language supports to facilitate employment opportunities.


You must register and have your qualifications recognised to work in some professions. For example, you must register with the Medical Council to work as a doctor.

The Teaching Council is developing a process to allow people who are qualified teachers in Ukraine to register and teach in Ireland.
