D7 Global on the Effect of Irish Youth Emigrating to Australia

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2011) - Recent reports have been published stating that 60% of adults 18 – 25 are set to emigrate to Australia in 2011. Due to the recession in Ireland the Irish are no longer going to travel. Instead, they are setting up home and seeking work in an economy that is at full employment. D7 Global considers the ramifications of this huge number of young people emigrating.

Australia is one of a few countries that has not entered recession and with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world, work is plenty. There is a major skills shortage especially for those with a background in medicine, nursing, engineering and construction. Over the next few years, Australia will require tens of thousands of skilled migrants, which is good news for any of the unemployed Irish who are thinking of emigrating Down Under, or the tens of thousands who are there already.

Managing Director of D7 Global Tina Fletcher stated that when she was on her travels around Australia she came across a lot of Irish people, especially those who were under 30 and on the two-year working holiday visa. It is estimated that there are 30,000 on this type of visa alone. This figure doesn't take into account the thousands who are on sponsored visas, which are organised by employers.

Tina said 'The benefits of travelling and seeing in other cultures is amazing, it opens your eyes to the traditions, backgrounds and history of other countries'. Unemployment is increasing by the day in Ireland as the country and government are under pressure to revive the economy. Tina stated 'The youth are not to be blamed for leaving the country as career and education opportunities arise elsewhere. However, this does not hold any benefits to the future of Ireland when asking -Who will replace the current government and be educated to work in our health services?
