REMOTE WORK READY

WITH INTRODUCTION TO VIRTUAL REALITY

LOETB, in collaboration with IDA Ireland, SOLAS, and Grow Remote, has created fully- funded training programmes to develop the skillset required of learners wishing to transition and thrive while working remotely.

WE'RE BUILDING A REMOTE WORK READY WORKFORCE

There are 80,000 remote jobs open in Ireland today. These are decent jobs with salaries, pensions, and benefits.  Remote work has evolved from freelance and gig work, and with that, the skills required have changed. At Grow Remote, we are building a remote ready workforce in Ireland, led by some of the world’s largest remote employers. Our programmes are fun, engaging, and wrapped up in community. We’re really eager to see you succeed.

Learner success story

Mary Theresa

My name is Mary Theresa Lowndes. I am 64 years old. I came from a very disadvantaged background. And I have a stammer caused by severe corporal punishment in school. But I have found temporary remote work as a content and research analyst. 

I have to thank Grow Remote for the knowledge gained and the confidence and the encouragement received. Without them I know that I would never have found work.
