This paper analyses the economic, social, and political factors leading to the mobility of labour and the capital in the Republic of Ireland over the last five years. Specifically, the research will focus on the increase of Brazilian community in Ireland and the contribution it has made to the Irish Hospitality industry and its expansion. Furthermore, it explores hospitality as the leading sector amongst immigrant’s employability. However, it can be said that people currently working in jobs of lower skill requirement have experience or qualifications in other areas. The aim of this research is to understand through professional recruiters with experience and insight into the Brazilian community, what the barriers are that need to be overcome in order to relocate these professionals into jobs that match their specific skillset and professional qualifications to Irish labour market. Additionally, it will be made a collection of data from Brazilian immigrants across the Republic to understand their vision and ambitions in relation to professional career prospects in Ireland.
