In over 40 years, Extern has grown to become one of the leading and most trusted charities on the island of Ireland.

Today we employ over 600 compassionate and professional staff who support over 20,000 people per year…and we’re not stopping there.

Recognised as a fantastic, friendly, and fascinating place to work, the growing demand for our network of specialised projects, now means we have an increasing range of career opportunities available across the year.

That’s why we’d like to invite you to join us on for our informal Open House Careers Evening.

Whether your interest is in mental health, homelessness, dual diagnosis, problematic drug and alcohol use, young people and families, justice or minority communities, we are sure to have a role of interest to you, and a range of grades on offer.

We also have a wide range of support service roles, including drivers, skills-tutors and more.

At the event you can hear directly from, and chat to, our colleagues who deliver our life-changing frontline services, and find out why 99% of referring professionals said they would work with Extern again.

So find out if you could #BeExtern. Join us on the 6th of February, and help us change lives every day.
