Jobs in the HSE
The HSE is the largest employer in the state, with over 100,000 employees. More than 67,000 are direct employees, the remainder are employed by agencies funded by the HSE. The HSE aims to be an Employer of Choice, and offers a wide range of challenging career opportunities that enable our staff to make an important contribution to the health services, to public service and to the lives of everyone living in Ireland.
The Government introduced a moratorium on recruitment in the Public Service in March 2009. While this has reduced significantly the number of job opportunities in the HSE, we continue to recruit for specified grades exempted under the moratorium. Click here to find out more about the moratorium.
