When a non-EEA citizen wants to work in Ireland, they typically need to apply for an employment permit through the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (DETE). The Employment Permits Acts provide the framework for DETE's employment permit system.
In order to facilitate specialized, highly-skilled employment of a short term nature (typically less than 90 days) that is not supported by current Employment Permit legislation, the Departments of Justice and Enterprise, Trade and Employment (DETE) developed the Atypical Working Scheme (AWS). Some other employment circumstances are also supported by the Atypical Working Scheme as a result of consultation with other government departments and agencies (including the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, the Department of Health, and the Health Services Executive (HSE)).
You must apply for your AWS permission through the Online Application portal: here.
