Jobs For IMGs in the Republic of Ireland


There are some misconceptions and truths regarding jobs in Ireland. A misconception is that you cannot secure a job in Irish hospitals, and the truth is that it is challenging to get a job, and you must be competent enough to secure a job in Ireland.


NCHD (Non-Consultant-Hospital-Doctor) jobs start between January and July. Job offers for January induction run from September-December. Similarly, Job offers for July induction run from April-June.

NCHD includes SHO (Senior House Officer) and Registrar.

You must have experience of 4-5 years or more in your home country for a registrar post. You can apply for SHO as soon as you get your IMC registration.


How to apply for jobs?

You can apply for jobs in three different ways.

  1. Search for jobs at the official HSE website, where maximum jobs are advertised from time to time.
  2. Apply directly to the hospitals' website. Many hospital jobs are advertised mainly on the official HSE website, but some hospitals also advertise on websites. Visit the hospital website of your choice and regularly check the career section.
  3. You can also apply through recruitment agencies. Only a few doctors are selected from recruitment agencies, but if they require your expertise, you can secure a job from them as well. Some of the recruitment agencies are listed below. Subscribe to these websites so that when jobs are listed, you could get an e-mail.


How to secure an Interview?

Securing an interview call could be a challenging job, so I advise remaining calm and working on your CV to show your competencies to the employer. There are specific ways of showing your competency.

  1. You must hold IMC General Registration, and your IELTS/OET should be valid while applying for jobs.
  2. You must write a professional CV mentioning your competencies.
  3. You must write an Excellent Cover Letter to stand out.
  4. BLS/ACLS and online courses could also help you to secure an interview call.
  5. Teaching experience
  6. Research, audits, and publications in international journals.
  7. Any other community work or other useful certificates might help.

    If someone didn’t get the job even after 2 years of registration in IMC, will their registration get expired or not ?

    • Ahsan Zeeshan

      No or wouldn’t if you pay your registration fee. You can always reactivate if your registration is not activated.

  4. Amina Tariq

    What if we are registered with IMC and now the OET expires. Is it possible to find job or do we need to retake the oet exam ?

    • Ahsan Zeeshan

      Keep applying for the jobs! Some time they take it even if oet is expired. Sometime When they find out your oet is expired they offer you a post and ask you to retake oet and give joining then! So keep applying for jobs if you have active registration!

  6. Hi,
    If a M.O is earning 3 to 4 lac in pakistan, is it still worth to work in Ireland or Uk keeping in the view the salary and overall quality of life.
    Can a junior doctor save more by working in ireland or UK!

    • Ahsan Zeeshan

      It depend on your personal preferences ! While working in ireland uk you cab save up to 3 4 lac! But again …. If you have good quality of life in pakistan then its your choice! If MO earning 3 4 lac in Pak then it means he is working day and night! Which is not a case in ireland uk!

    • Ahsan Zeeshan

      For registration yes you need valid oet. For maximum job yes you need it but sometime mostly private hospitals accept your expired oet as well. Thanks
