Have you been thinking of returning home to Ireland? This thought may even be stronger now with Christmas approaching and the rapid changing work environments around the world post Covid-19, not to mention the upheaval next year with Brexit looming.

Who could blame you wanting to be home closer to loved ones? Over the last year, FRS Recruitment have noticed an increase in the number of pharmacists returning to Ireland, both Irish pharmacists and pharmacists from other nations, wishing to make Ireland their home.

Pharmacy jobs Ireland

Ireland is known as one of the world’s Pharmaceutical Capitals, with now over 1,800 pharmacies operating on our Green Isle. These pharmacies are the core of our communities, providing a vital role, delivering much needed services to those in need. According to the ESRI, and based on population growth projections, demand for prescription items alone will reach 106 million by 2030 which is a 44.4% increase on previous years, with demand for pharmaceutical consultations expected to increase by 25.1% to around 7.5 million by 2030.

The Industry is continuously adapting, especially within the retail space, by offering additional services such as diabetes testing, baby weighing and vaccinations to name but a few. These strong indicators tell us that pharmacists will be given more clinical responsibility by the State. This is further demonstrated by the roll out of the Flu Vaccination Service, the successful Minor Ailment Scheme and the possibility of pharmacies assisting in the Covid-19 vaccination programme.
