How to Apply for Work Ireland



Having a smooth application process is important to us! We are upfront with all costs and provide a comprehensive screening phone call ensuring you know how the program works. We try and answer all your questions and then provide you with our expert travel materials that will prepare you for your next step. Our entire application process is outlined below for you to review.

Be aware that there are some dodgy companies out there that will try and pressure you into applying. Always read the T&C’sand beware of all the costs. If the costs aren’t listed on the company’s website – we recommend walking away.

At IEP, we pride ourselves in offering the best customer service on the market – if you aren’t happy after the initial phone call we will refund you in full.
