An Irish house agent is on the job for a mere £10 an hour.
The job requires you to be fluent in both Irish and English, and also have an interest in all things Irish.
It is a job where the odds are stacked against you, with the Irish population of Dublin alone being estimated at a staggering 2.3 million.
Irish house agents are well aware of this.
They work with thousands of people a year, and many of them come to them from overseas.
In an effort to recruit more of these hard-working, highly qualified people, the government has set up the Irish House Agents Association.
“We’ve had to go from the lowest-paid job in the country to a position of a £10.
We’ve had people who have been working in this sector for years, so they’ve done everything they can to try and get to work,” said a spokesperson for the association.
A spokesman for the Irish Irish House Agent Association said the union was looking to increase the number of house agents.
“We want to increase their numbers and we want them to do their job well,” he said.
I think they’re very proud to work for an organisation like that, he said, and they’re trying to do everything they possibly can to get to the top.
But it is hard work.
There is a pay scale and it is very competitive, said a House Agent’s union member, who asked not to be named.
He said the main reason he was willing to take the job was to give his family some stability.
