If that sounds like you, we want to hear from you. You could become a part of something truly pioneering that’s putting Ireland at the forefront of innovation. 

Why join UCD Innovation Academy?

  • We’re interested in your experience as well as your qualifications. We celebrate diversity of thought, irrespective of background or discipline. 
  • Our culture is adventurous. High-energy. Experimental. Courageous. And impactful. 
  • We work hard, but we embrace a playful approach to tap into our innate creativity. 
  • And we’re kind. We believe in creating a safe environment – often with an injection of humour – where people feel comfortable to be themselves.

FAQs

Where can I submit my application for a position?

All applications can be made at https://www.ucd.ie/workatucd/jobs/ 

I am unable to proceed with the application as I do not possess a third level degree in a relevant field. I do however have years of experience working in this / similar field.

Unfortunately the requirements are linked to the job grading (salary range) evaluated by HR so we wouldn’t be able to employ someone in this role unless they have a third level degree (though there can be some flexibility as to what ‘relevant field’ might include).
