Access one of the youngest talent pools in Europe
The quality of Cork’s talent pool is core to its success. Cork is the second largest area in Ireland and with a population of more than 550,000, we have an abundance of homegrown talent and one of the youngest workforces across Europe providing a ready labour supply. Cork is also set to expand rapidly in the next two decades with ambitious growth plans in place both for Cork City and key towns within the wider Cork region. This growth will be further stimulated by Cork becoming the second largest English speaking city in the EU after March 2019.
Cork is also a proven attractive location for both international students and experienced professionals looking for the next step in their career. Over the last two decades, Cork has evolved into a cosmopolitan region that is home to more than 100 nationalities and thousands of international students. 40% of Cork city centre residents were born outside of Ireland.
