EMPLOYMENT

To achieve positive outcomes for themselves, their families and their communities, migrant women need better access to the labour market, which includes recognition of skills, education and work experience from their country of origin. Ireland’s current economic climate means a balance will need to be struck between the retention of immigrant staff and up skilling of indigenous marginalised communities in Ireland, in support of an integrated workforce. The attainment of economic independence is crucial to women experiencing domestic violence so that they can make decisions based on safety and not poverty. The organisation sees employment as key to integration and economic independence of migrant women. (Link to ‘Useful Links’)
