A report by recruitment group Indeed said Ireland comes second after Luxembourg as the most attractive location for jobseekers within the EU 15 group of countries, adjusted for population size. The EU 15 comprises the 15 earliest countries to join the trading bloc – the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Sweden, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Austria, Belgium and Finland

Although Ireland has a population of only 4.5m, it still attracts almost as many jobseekers as countries with much bigger populations such as Italy (with a population of 60m) and Spain (population of 47m), Indeed said, adding that Brexit could boost Ireland’s position ever further.

The research also found that Irish people are the third biggest seekers of jobs in Britain.
