A Guide to the Anaesthetics Job Market in Ireland

Global Medics is the leading agency in Ireland for supplying experienced Anaesthetists to the Health Service Executive (HSE) and private facilities throughout Ireland since 2006.

The anaesthetics market in Ireland has evolved over the past few years for a number of factors, including the standardisation of hourly and salary pay rates, an increased requirement of locum and fixed term salaried roles and the introduction of the EU Working Time Directive program. These factors have caused a spike for the demand of anaesthetics doctors in Ireland for both locum and fixed term salaried jobs.

The future is very optimistic in the Irish anaesthetics locum and fixed term salaried job market. There is a high demand at the Registrar and Consultant level due to increased competition abroad combined with hospitals adhering to the EU Working Time Directive program thereby reducing situations where doctors are overscheduled in hospital rotas.

There are many benefits of working as an Anaesthetist in Ireland including:

– Ongoing career development and training within a world leading anaesthetics market
– Flexibility with a choice of locum or fixed term salaried jobs
– The ability to work within city and regional hospitals
– Rich cultural heritage and friendly communities

For Anaesthetists outside of Ireland we provide advice and assistance with the Irish Medical Council (IMC) registration, immigration and visa requirements, and relocation to Ireland.
