Connect Ireland

ConnectIreland is an innovative way to create new jobs in Ireland by harnessing the power of the global Diaspora – at home and abroad. Their mission is to attract foreign companies that are expanding internationally to Ireland through ordinary people – creating jobs and securing the future of the Irish economy.  A successful tip-off that results in job creation in Ireland will lead to a payment of between €1,500 and €150,000 depending on the number of jobs created. Register as a connector, refer a company that may be considering an international expansion and Connect Ireland will contact the company to explain the advantages of establishing in Ireland. If the company chooses Ireland you benefit from the reward.
