LIMERICK and the Mid-West offers tech and biotech workers careers and salaries that are, at least, on a par with those available in Dublin, the organisers of a major recruitment event at Thomond Park have said.

With the added bonus of a better work/life balance and more affordable housing, job seekers are now in the position to choose from hundreds of open roles in Limerick and the Midwest with some of the world’s most innovative employers, according to the organisers of the February 1 event.

“Tech on the Wild Atlantic Way” is a major tech, biotech and aviation recruitment event hosted by career specialists Career Zoo.

It aims to pair sci-tech employers with world-class STEM talent who are interested in building a new career in the Midwest.

The organisers say they recognise that people tend to question their working and living situations when a New Year dawns.

The Thomond Park event will have a special focus on Artificial Intelligence.

It is expected to attract over 2,000 STEM professionals and over 50 tech, bio tech and aviation companies with a private 2020 Tech Train delivering talent from Dublin to Limerick for the event.

Career Zoo Director Brian Ó hOisín said; “There has been a perception in the past that moving out of Dublin entails sacrifice – that your salary or quality of work might not be as high – but that is no longer the case.”
