Moving From Ireland to Poland - Job Hunt

Hi guys, I am graduating with Law in Dublin this April and I am dreaming about moving over to Poland (which deems my degree useless). I have a significant management and sales experience with proven track record of high sales and target achievements. i have also completed an internship in Boston Consulting Group. Unfortunately I am having little or no luck with finding a job over there. Are there any Irish companies operating in Poland that are looking for fluent Polish speakers in field of management and/or sales? Any tips would be great, I am open to anything as long as it pays.

Why Dave? Are you Polish/Irish? I see you speak Polish fluently.

Your best bet is to contact Irish organisations like Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Polish Chamber of Commerce. Enterprise Ireland will probably be able to give you a list of possible contacts and may be able to give you some introductions.

I'm linking to a pdf of the Irish Poland Business Directory published by the Irish Embassy in Poland. It has details of all Irish owned companies and contact details for their owners/managers. It's fairly recent but it's about two or three years old so not everything may be current.

Hey Atch, I am, i have lived in Ireland for the last 16 years but after doing my BCG internship in Warsaw in 2019 I fell in love with the place and I wanna move over.

Thank you that's very helpful I will message Enterprise and see what they say

Ah, bless you :) I can understand the pull of Poland for you. Well, you know what Ireland is like. A word in the right ear can do a lot. Making personal connections and contacts is key to success in Ireland and keep working away at that. You're in Ireland, so use it as your starting point. Also don't forget that many UK companies in Poland would be happy to have you because of your bilingual abilities. So don't just go for Irish. It seems a pity that your legal studies will go to waste. I know the two legal systems are quite different but it is possible in theory to practise law in Poland with a law degree from another EU country. Maybe you should look into that in the long term?

Yeah I have also meet a girl but that's a different story lol. Yeah that's very true and I though an Irish company could benefit from having a half Irish half Polish person who understands both markets and speaks but language fluently. It's just the matter of finding the right company. So I suppose Enterprise will be a start, that is if they reply haha. I don't really mind the whole Law degree honestly when I started it, I had different plans but that's changed. Sales, management is my thing but I do not want to be a door to door kinda sales man if you know what I mean.

Famous last words............

Yes, I get your point about understanding both markets. That's a fair point all right.

I suppose Enterprise will be a start, that is if they reply haha.

Phone them up you big eejit! Yes, I'm Irish too :) Seriously though, you can try emailing but if you don't get a response, phone up.

Is there no chance of a job at BCG in Warsaw?

It's going to be a very tough process, one of the hardest in the world, so I am exploring other options just to be safe.

What about the Smurfit group in Poland? Pruszków where they're located is not that far from Warsaw.
