Take your career West

  • Enjoy a great salary with a top company - but a lower cost of living and a more affordable lifestyle.
  • Be part of a fast-growing and vibrant sci-tech scene.
  • No more city commute - enjoy a potentially much shorter walk or drive to work!

Soaring rents in Dublin are pricing tech and biotech workers out of the Capital and leaving them with low-disposable incomes creating a poorer quality of life. As well as landing salaries that can compete with Dublin, candidates making a move further west can also look forward to a drastic reduction in household spending:

Average Rent

Westmeath €941 Vs €2,016 Dublin City

Average House Price (3-bed semi)

Westmeath €143,000 Vs €532,000 Dublin City

A packed agenda compèred by Newstalk’s Jess Kelly will include a look at how the Midlands has become a hub for cutting-edge sci-tech, with advice on how to get the perfect Life Balance and much more.

There’s lots more exciting news on the way and registration is open.
