Healthcare
Back to Disciplines

Ireland’s healthcare system is characterized by a mix of public and private service providers, with the Health Service Executive (HSE) overseeing the public sector. Recruitment in this sector is crucial for ensuring that the system can meet the needs of a growing and aging population. The private sector includes private hospitals, clinics and healthcare providers, including nursing & care homes.    

The healthcare recruitment landscape in Ireland faces numerous challenges and opportunities as it strives to maintain high standards of care and address evolving health demands.    The COVID-19 pandemic profoundly impacted Ireland's healthcare sector, exacerbating existing challenges and introducing new ones. The pandemic led to unprecedented demand for healthcare services, straining resources and exposing significant staff shortages across the sector. 

Shortages in nursing and specialist areas are being exacerbated by high turnover rates and retirements with recruitment drives often hampered by competition from other countries offering more attractive packages.  Many healthcare professionals emigrate for better opportunities, high pay and improved working conditions.   

Healthcare recruitment in Ireland is a dynamic and challenging field that requires continuous effort and innovation. By addressing current challenges and implementing strategic initiatives, Ireland can build a resilient and capable healthcare workforce that meets the needs of its population.
