About Us

Who we are and what we do

Connecting great talent to great jobs

Recruit Refugees Ireland understands the importance of an inclusive and diverse Ireland. We believe the first step to successful inclusion is integration into the Irish jobs market for the Refugee and Asylum Seeker community. A job brings home much more than a pay cheque, it instills a sense of pride, hope, dignity and belonging. It opens up the ability to forge new relationships and supports integration into local communities.

This is far bigger than just CSR! The benefits of recruiting for diversity are well researched and extensive. As a team of experts in migration, recruitment and team development, we believe that Ireland can become the leading example of how to benefit from the great pool of talent within the migrant community.

Our Mission

Inspire dignity, hope and a bright future for Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Ireland by connecting people to careers.

An Ireland that embraces cultural diversity in the workplace. An Ireland free from discrimination and an Ireland full of equal opportunity.

that grows a brighter future.

Our Campaigns

How can you help?

Windows 4 Opportunity

Windows 4 Opportunity is an umbrella campaign initiated by Recruit Refugees Ireland. We brought together Charities, Grass Roots Organisations, Corporations and NGOs to achieve a shared goal. We are currently raising funds to provide laptops for residents in Direct Provision so they can access the opportunity of education and employment. This exciting initiative is growing and if you would like to partner with us or donate to our mission please contact us using the link below.

John Lannon

CEO of Doras

Through our work at Doras we know how difficult it is for someone in direct provision to access training and education and to prepare for entry into the labour market. A laptop can make a huge difference to anyone struggling to overcome the barriers, and can provide a means for them to participate in a programme of study that would otherwise be impossible. We’re delighted therefore to be a partner with RRI on the Windows 4 Opportunity initiative, and to see the success of the programme to date.
